HUNTINGTON -- Wayne Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Lincoln Nursing & Rehabilitation Center and the American Medical Facilities Management (AMFM) Charitable Foundation Inc. presented Cabell Huntington Hospital's Foundation and Senior Services Department with $2,000 on Wednesday.

AMFM owns and operates 11 care centers throughout West Virginia, including centers in Wayne and Lincoln counties, where Cabell Huntington Hospital provides care for many of their residents. The donation will be used to fund programs in the Cabell Huntington Hospital's Senior Services Department.

"We value our partnership with our neighboring facilities in providing important health care services to seniors in rural areas that are often underserved," Joy Pelfrey, director of the Senior Services Department at Cabell Huntington Hospital, said in a release.

The Senior Services Department at Cabell Huntington Hospital is an inpatient, outpatient and community outreach program that was designed to address the medical needs of seniors in our community.

Wednesday's donation was presented by Michael D. Gore, executive director for Lincoln Nursing & Rehabilitation Center and Cindy Cooper, executive director for Wayne Nursing & Rehabilitation Center.

"I am so pleased to offer this donation to the Cabell Huntington Hospital Foundation," Gore said in the release. "Working with Cabell Huntington Senior Services, this money will be used to directly impact senior needs in the area."
