The WVU Cancer Institute at Garrett Regional Medical Center celebrated the first patient, Paul Royer, to “ring the healing bell” announcing that his cancer is in remission. Royer happily rang the bell as his wife Flo, and staff from the Cancer Institute and members of administration celebrated along with him. Paul Royer is the first patient to declare a healing from the oncology center. He was under the care of Gladys Onojobi, MD, Chief of Oncology and received all his treatments at the Garrett Regional Medical Center location of the WVU Cancer Institute.
The month of May provides multiple opportunities to celebrate at Garrett Regional Medical Center. On May 15, 1950, 66 years ago, the Hospital opened its doors for the first time to provide much needed healthcare in the region. The Hospital recognizes its nursing staff during National Nurses Week, May 6-12 while the Hospital also recognizes National Hospital Week, May 8-14.
Employees of Garrett Regional Medical Center’s third floor nursing and clinical staff check out the progress in the third floor of the new wing construction area. The third floor, medical/surgical wing will open with six new private patient rooms, each with its own shower, a state of the art bariatric room and a new nurse’s station. As the newly completed patient rooms are opened, existing third floor patient rooms will be taken off-line in phases and renovated until all rooms are completed increasing the number of private rooms available to patients. The new third floor wing is expected to open for patient use by early this summer.
The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to Garrett Regional Medical Center Hospital Laboratory, based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs. This is the first time in the history of the hospital that this accreditation has been established for the medical center.
