HEALTH CARE

Dedicated to Meeting the Health Care Needs of Local Residents

F

ranklin County residents have access to the very best in health care, from a local medical center, to a full-service health department, to numerous home-health agencies and skilled nursing facilities. The Franklin Regional Medical Center in Louisburg was originally constructed in 1951. The 70-bed acute-care hospital offers state-of-the-art technology with personalized and compassionate care. According to Bonnie Little, director of public relations at Franklin Regional Medical Center, the hospital offers a remarkable 24-hour, 15-minute emergency room guarantee. “We stand by that promise,” Little asserts, “and we hit it 94 percent of the time.”

A total of 350 employees and more than 110 physicians who represent a wide range of specialties form one of the most highly trained health care teams in the region. The medical center’s small size, combined with an expansive medical staff and the latest in medical technology, allows patients to experience the very best in medical care. “We are one of the only health care providers in the region that offers a bariatric and gastric bypass program,” Little explains. “We have received a five-star rating from organizations that grade hospitals on their bariatrics programs.” Franklin Regional Medical Center is fully accredited by the Joint Commission on

Accreditation of Health Care Organizations, a distinction that is awarded only to those health care facilities that maintain the highest standards of quality. The medical center also recently received state approval for offering fixed MRI services. In addition to its bariatric surgical program, the hospital offers surgical services including orthopedic, spine, urology, gynecology, plastic and reconstructive surgery; general surgery; and ear, nose and throat surgery. It also features acute inpatient care for surgical, medical, pediatric, progressive and intensive care, as well as extensive gastroenterology services.

laboratory, two sleep disorder labs, cardiopulmonary services, a diabetes education and support program, a sports medicine and wellness center, free community health-education programs, and complete diagnostic imaging services. “All of these efforts are part of our continued commitment to meeting the needs of the people of Franklin County and the surrounding region,” Little explains. “The other part of our commitment to meeting these needs is by recruiting top physicians in key specialty areas. We believe that people want to receive the care they need close to home and to their loved ones. Franklin Regional Medical Center continues to rise above the national average for small community hospitals by maintaining a greater than 90 percent board certification rate among our physicians.” In addition to a quality local medical center, Franklin County is located near a number of nationally known university medical centers, including Duke University Medical Center and the UNC Health Care System in Chapel Hill. The Franklin County Health Department also offers a full array of services for area citizens, including clinical services, maternal health, child health, childhood immunizations, communicable disease control, adult health, cancer screenings and a WIC (Women, Infants and Children) nutrition program. The department also features a dental clinic, an environmental health program, home health and public health preparedness. In partnership with other local organizations, the health department also offers the Frankly Healthy Program, which has a mission to improve health status and prevent premature death and injury for Franklin County residents. The priorities for the Frankly Healthy Program are focused on chronic diseases (adult obesity, nutrition, high blood pressure, diabetes and breast cancer) and youth health (nutrition, physical activity, teen pregnancy prevention and education about unsafe sex). The Franklin County Department of Social Services also provides important services to the community, administering 36 different programs targeted toward families and children, as well as the disabled, blind and elderly. Franklin County is also dedicated to meeting chronic health care needs for its citizens, as it is home to skilled nursing facilities, home health care services, private home health agencies and a number of nursing homes.


RECREATION

Recreation and Leisure Activities Offer Fun

ranklin County offers numerous opportunities for recreation and leisure. From hunting and fishing to golf and local parks, simple outdoor adventures are available for the young and old. In support of its tourism initiatives, a TDA (Tourism Development Authority) got its start in the first half of 2006. Richie Duncan is a board member for the new tourism authority. “Our main objective is to entertain applications and award grants to organizations that will bring tourism into the community,” Duncan explains. “Monies will be awarded primarily to fund advertising and

marketing initiatives that will help bring tourism dollars into Franklin County.” Franklin County is home to many fun and unique activities. “Agri-tourism is very popular in this area,” Duncan notes. “Hill Ridge Farms and Vollmer Farm both provide recreation and a taste of farm life. Families can go on hayrides; pick strawberries and pumpkins in season; and see livestock, including baby goats, chickens and ducks.” Duncan said a number of venues, particularly the Double D Ranch, offer horseback riding and instruction for both the casual

rider and the experienced equestrian. A proliferation of biking and hiking trails are available at the Allen Dehart Nature Preserve, which has received statewide recognition. The county is also home to Franklin County Sports Parachute, a nationally recognized organization for the brave-hearted.

popular pastime, as deer, turkey, waterfowl and small game present hunting opportunities on private land.” Golfers can enjoy the game at three courses located within the county. Bull Creek Country Club in Louisburg and The River Golf Course in Bunn are public courses, and a private course is available at Green Hill Country Club in Louisburg. The mission of the Parks and Recreation Department is “to promote the quality of life by serving the community’s needs for leisure, parks, information and referral by providing quality and affordable recreational programs and services to all residents.” In support of this mission, the Franklinton Park on Second Street offers a children’s playground, a baseball field, a running track, and a softball field, a loop trail for walkers, a picnic shelter, grills, and picnic tables. The Moose Lodge Park off Moose Loop Road features a baseball and softball field. The Franklin County Parks and Recreation Department also provides numerous opportunities for health and fitness for the community.

An open gym for adults age 18 and older is available for pickup basketball play on Sundays from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. at Bunn Middle School gym. In addition to these fun activities, Franklin County residents can participate in senior programming offered through the Franklinton and Louisburg Centers, and children and adults can enjoy programming through the local 4-H organization.

Whatever your pleasure, these and countless other recreational opportunities make Franklin County a fun and exciting place to live.


CULTURE

Organizations Offer Cultural Enrichment

F

ranklin County is rich in cultural heritage and provides a wide variety of enrichment opportunities. The town of Louisburg was established in the 1770s, and the county’s formation was finalized in 1779. Louisburg was named in honor of King Louis XIV of France, who aided the American Revolution, and Franklin County was named in honor of Benjamin Franklin, one of our nation’s founding fathers. The Person Place Preservation Society in Louisburg has been established to promote an interest in the community’s history and the preservation of the county’s historic homes and buildings. Louisburg is home to both Louisburg College and Vance Granville Community College, both of which offer courses in the arts. Louisburg College annually hosts the Allen de Hart Concert Series, which brings nationally and internationally acclaimed musicians and performers to Louisburg. Past performances have featured The Platters, the Glenn Miller Band, the Oak Ridge Boys and the Golden Dragon Acrobats. The college also presents a variety of exciting visual arts exhibits in its gallery each year, from professional art exhibitions to student art shows. Founded in 1978, the Franklin County Arts Council encourages, sponsors, develops, promotes and increases the public appreciation of the visual, literary and performing

arts. The council works to secure arts funding from governmental and private foundations, and they sponsor a Regional Artist Grant Program to aid up-and-coming area artisans. Like Person Place Preservation, promoting the area’s history and heritage is also an important goal of the Franklin County Arts Council. Both organizations exhibit heritage arts to emphasize county history. The council’s premier event is the International Whistlers Convention, held each year in April. By sponsoring the convention, the International Whistlers Music Festival, the International School for Whistlers and the International Whistlers Museum, the Franklin County Arts Council has placed Louisburg on the map as the “world’s whistling capital.” The governor of North Carolina has proclaimed “Happy Whistlers Week” for citizens and visitors to honor the art of whistling. The Franklin County Arts Council also offers literary events, such as contests, readings and publications, and it sponsors concert artists for the Franklin County School System and a singing convention for church and school choirs. In addition, the council sponsors a summer art camp for children in kindergarten through sixth grade, and it works with the school system to provide artists and musicians-in-residence. Finally, the

Arts Council hosts art exhibitions, photography shows, dinner concerts and craft shows for the entire community. All of these organizations work together to promote and enrich the arts in Franklin County.

Together in Faith Franklin County offers more than 100 churches, representing most major denominations, and one synagogue. Church life in Franklin County includes a variety of activities that take place not only on Sundays, but also during the week. Churches sponsor day care and preschools, as well as Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Recreational outings for youth and adults are common ways to help unite the congregation and community. Added to the opportunities for participation are church bazaars, retreats, youth groups, music groups and schools. Franklin County residents experience a long-standing tradition of religious freedom and service to their neighbors and others in need.
