Dogwood Health Trust’s Board will prioritize the community’s needs without regard to any relationship with HCA Healthcare.  It will identify collaborative strategies to address them, and seek partnerships with others to implement its long-range strategic plan.  Dogwood Health Trust’s goal is to partner with local communities to produce a dramatic, positive, long-term impact on the health and well-being of the people of western North Carolina.  Dogwood Health Trust will be completely separate from HCA Healthcare and from Mission Health.  Additionally, it will not be controlled or influenced by HCA Healthcare.
