About the Community:
Smyth County Community Hospital is located in historic Marion, Virginia. Marion is the gateway to both Hungry Mother State Park and the highest peak in Virginia, Mount Rogers. Within miles of hiking and biking trails, stocked trout streams and a 500-acre mountain lake, Marion is an ideal place for a vacation – or to call home. Marion is one of the few towns to receive designation as an official Virginia Main Street Community and Nation Main Street Community. The town is known for the Lincoln Theatre, which is the home of the nationally syndicated bluegrass music program, “Song of the Mountains.” Every month from May through December, the town hosts ArtWalk with local artists and musicians.
