Sometimes the most interesting things in life are not easily categorized. Here is an online sample of some items in the Talbot’s collection that are worthy of note, but don’t fit elsewhere.

WK Health System Patient Guide circa 2000


Over the years, the patient guides to WK medical and health centers have changed.  They have been refined and fine-tuned as times and locations changed. 

 The system has grown from one to four facilities.  Stays in hospitals have shortened.  Smoking once a cliche in the maternity waiting room is gone. A Patient Bill of Rights and Responsibilities are included in the patient guide. 

The guide is now larger with more colorful illustrations.  What has remains the same is the commitment to continuously improve the health and wellbeing of the people we serve
