SJMH, a 70-bed facility, has offered a full-range of medical care to residents of Weston and central West Virginia in the current facility since 1972 and overall for over half a century. Since its founding, SJMH has delivered the best possible combination of primary and specialized care in a safe, efficient, and compassionate manner.
"The partnership with Foundation reinforces our vision to ensure that our mission is fulfilled as a result of our continuous assessment and improvement of patient care. Foundation's Elegant Radiology model provides access to superior subspecialty radiologists and a consistent onsite radiologist presence that we were not afforded with our prior group," said Avah Stalnaker, chief executive officer of SJMH.
"Following significant investments in our core imaging technologies and planned future investments, we're confident that with Foundation's assistance and utilization of their FRIENDS Physician Outreach program we will now be able to expand existing and offer new service lines that we have been unable to provide in the past," continued Stalnaker. "We will now be able to offer patients in the Weston and surrounding communities radiology services that are the equal to or better than those of any in the region."
