Agenda for the annual spring luncheon held by the Loar Auxiliary of Garrett Regional Medical Center held three primary objectives this year; the election of new officers, recognition for membership and donation of funds to the Hospital. New officers elected were Molly Hartung for president and Carol Shiffy for secretary. Molly and Carol will begin their two year term of office on July 1 and both women have been active members since 2012. Molly Hartung assumes the position from outgoing president Phyllis Gank.
Garrett Regional Medical Center recognized the original volunteers who helped to develop the Volunteers in Various Areas program, known as VIVA, twenty five years ago. Volunteers were invited to a special recognition luncheon and membership meeting. The charter volunteers in attendance to receive their certificates were Helen Atwill, Betty Croston, Helen Earles, Lollie Fridinger, Letha Hanlin, Jackie Johnson and Betty Pritt.
Garrett Regional Medical Center has applied for stroke certification from the Joint Commission of hospital accreditation. The certification was developed by the Joint Commission’s new Disease-Specific Care Advanced Certification Program for Acute Stroke Ready Hospitals. “This distinct certification is not required, however it is very important to demonstrate to the community the competence with which care is rendered at Garrett Regional Medical Center,” explained Mark Boucot, president & CEO.
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.
