Cabell Huntington Hospital and Pleasant Valley Hospital (PVH) announce that they are beginning exclusive discussions toward a collaborative arrangement/partnership agreement that will be designed to mutually benefit both organizations. Leaders at CHH and PVH plan to work together to develop the agreement over the next 90 days.
Cabell Huntington Hospital has earned a reputation for innovation, commitment to advancing medicine and enhancing the medical talent in our region. "This partnership will enhance the best of both organizations," stated Brent A. Marsteller, President/CEO of Cabell Huntington Hospital. "The growth and development of Cabell's academic affiliation with the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and Marshall Health physicians over the past decade has proved that joining together to provide highly-specialized physicians and services means better health care for the community. We know that formally collaborating with Pleasant Valley Hospital will benefit the communities to our north while continuing our high standard of personal care in Huntington and the surrounding areas."
Recently named one of the top hospitals in the State of West Virginia for Quality Patient Care, Pleasant Valley Hospital has been seeking a partner that will help them continue to ensure the residents of Point Pleasant and Mason County have access to top quality health care.
"These are exciting and challenging times for all health care organizations. We chose to seek a partner that we believe would best help us meet those challenges and best serve the people who live in our community. We believe that Cabell Huntington Hospital's vision for the future best aligned with our vision," said Larry Unroe, interim CEO of Pleasant Valley Hospital.
The development of a partnership agreement between CHH and PVH will provide opportunities for new and enhanced health care services, based on the needs of patients and the community. The PVH campus will continue to provide hospital, nursing home and rehabilitation services. "This opportunity will allow PVH to be at the forefront of health care excellence in the Tri-State," stated Unroe. "The Board of Trustees and Management believe PVH services (i.e., hospital, nursing home, rehab, etc.), our local physicians, and our PVH staff will continue to play a vital role in our communities."
