In healthcare there is a movement to encourage patients to play a more active role in their healthcare. That includes making your own decision about where to go for any healthcare services you may need.
Your doctor or other healthcare provider may outline healthcare facilities or other health providers that are options for you to consider for services. But ultimately the choice of where to go is yours. Unfortunately many people do not realize they have a choice. So, they may seek or be directed to use health providers outside of their local community or in our case outside of Tyrone.

If the healthcare service you need is available at Tyrone Hospital, or on the Tyrone Health and Wellness Campus through one of our specialists or partners, there is no reason why you should choose to leave the Tyrone area for that service. Your experience will be equal or better if you stay here in Tyrone and you will save time and money on the cost of gas.
