Mon Health System has opened its new Mon Health Marion Neighborhood Hospital in Marion County, West Virginia.The Mon Health Marion Neighborhood Hospital is a small-format hospital, meaning it offers a smaller number of beds than a traditional hospital but still brings high-level services, such as a 24-hour emergency care unit, overnight hospitalization services, on-site diagnostic testing and imaging, laboratory services, and 10 inpatient beds.
“From the very beginning, the people of White Hall and greater Marion County community welcomed us with wide open arms, and we cannot express strongly enough how grateful we are for the overwhelming support,” saysDavid Goldberg, Mon Health System president and CEO. “There is a clear desire in this region for more high-quality, patient-centered health care options, and we are confident that when our hospital opens, it will exceed your expectations in every way.” U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra spoke about the triumph of opening a small format hospital in a rural community in the current year and the benefit this has on the community.
“There are 10 beds here that you know you can use,” Becerra says. “When your child gets sick, you know you can come here and not have to travel miles to get to a place like here.”
