At Cabell Huntington Hospital, our goal is to be the hospital of choice for seniors, and we have been working hard to provide the quality of care you deserve. Our commitment to excellence in the care of older patients is evident in the foundation we have been building since 2003, including a wide variety of programs to benefit seniors.
The Senior Services Department was established to ensure that the Cabell Huntington Hospital staff is always providing the most appropriate care for senior patients. Senior Services' mission reaches beyond our campus and into the community, with a goal to share current health information and opportunities for screenings and education with seniors. The department serves as a primary referral center for seniors across the community. In addition to hosting the annual SeniorFest at Cabell Huntington Hospital, the Senior Services staff has built strong relationships with organizations and residential facilities for seniors throughout the Tri-State— attending meetings, speaking at events and hosting health fairs to share their message.
Senior Services Program Coordinator Becky Edwards joined the Cabell Huntington Hospital staff in 1990. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing from the Ohio State University School of Nursing and worked on the Neuroscience Unit for 21 years as both a staff nurse and Clinical Coordinator before joining the Senior Services team. She is highly focused on quality of care improvements, and she enjoys caring for the senior population. Becky also serves as the Coordinator for the Senior Fracture Program. She was instrumental in the development of the program which is designated as a center of excellence and earned Joint Commission Disease-specific Certification in Hip Fracture Care.
