Programs to assist seniors in need received a boost Wednesday as officials from the Wayne Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Lincoln Nursing & Rehabilitation Center and the American Medical Facilities Management (AMFM) Charitable Foundation Inc. presented Cabell Huntington Hospital’s Foundation and Senior Services Department with $2,000. AMFM owns and operates 11 care centers throughout West Virginia, including centers in Wayne and Lincoln counties, where Cabell Huntington Hospital provides care for many of their residents. This donation will be used to enrich the services provided to seniors through Cabell Huntington Hospital’s Senior Services Department.

“We value our partnership with our neighboring facilities in providing important healthcare services to seniors in rural areas that are often underserved,” said Joy Pelfrey, Director of the Senior Services Department at Cabell Huntington Hospital. “We have been fortunate to work with the staff at Lincoln Nursing & Rehabilitation and Wayne Nursing & Rehabilitation to meet the needs of seniors in those communities. As the aging population in our communities continues to grow, the collaborative partnerships we have developed will become more important than ever in meeting the needs of the seniors we serve.  Senior Services is very grateful for this generous gift that will be used to provide services to our most treasured generation.”

The Senior Services Department at Cabell Huntington Hospital is a comprehensive inpatient, outpatient and community outreach program designed to address the unique medical needs of seniors in our community.

The donation was presented by Michael D. Gore, Executive Director for Lincoln Nursing & Rehabilitation Center and Cindy Cooper, Executive Director for Wayne Nursing & Rehabilitation Center. 

"I am so pleased to offer this donation to the Cabell Huntington Hospital Foundation,” Gore said. “Working with Cabell Huntington Senior Services, this money will be used to directly impact senior needs in the area."

“At Wayne Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, we pride ourselves on the quality care we provide to our patients and families,” Cooper said. “We see this donation as an extension of that care that can reach communities outside of our center.”
