Our Community

ACHS is thankful for the support of the communities we serve. We are committed to enhancing partnerships with communities, local businesses and organizations to foster a culture of collaboration and to strengthen our local economy and long-term viability of Adair County.

ACHS’s list of involvement in community activities is extensive, including Chamber events, first aid tents and preschool tours, to name a few. It is honor for all staff at ACHS to participate in these activities and we are proud to have so many employees willing to represent ACHS in the community.

Each one of these opportunities allows us to share ACHS’s story and demonstrate our commitment to caring for the community. Additionally, they help us to create shared experiences and build common ground – enriching the lives of participating employees and members of the community.

Better Together
