What makes Goodwin Different?
One of the many things setting Goodwin Community Health apart is our staff commitment to our mission. When staff was surveyed on why they work at Goodwin, the overwhelming lead response was, “I believe in the mission” to provide exceptional health care that is accessible to all people in our community. Our staff is personally committed to making our community a better, healthier place.

Smoking is not permitted in buildings, on the grounds, or in the parking lots. For the health of our patients, employees, and visitors, we ask that you please extinguish all smoking materials before exiting your vehicles. Thank you.
