No visitors at center

Playground dedication postponed

The McCarty Center is saddened to announce the temporary postponement of our playground dedication ceremony that was originally scheduled for March 27, 2020. The playground dedication ceremony was designed to be a celebration of acceptance and love and actively included our inpatients. 
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospital must currently limit inpatient contact with the public, unfortunately delaying this highly anticipated event. We look forward to rescheduling the ceremony in the near future and we'll provide you with information about the new dedication date and time.Thank you for your support!

These precautionary measures are intended to provide a safe and healthy environment for the patients we serve. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
