PMC unable to host Veterans Day event

PIKEVILLE, Ky. -- Due to major cuts in reimbursements, Pikeville Medical Center is limiting nonessential services and will not sponsor a Veterans Day celebration this year. PMC invites local residents to pay tribute to veterans at Pike County's annual event, of which details have not yet been released.

"We always want to be supportive of our veterans," said Walter E. May, PMC president and CEO. "We encourage everyone to fly their American flags and thank our veterans on Nov. 11. Pike County's Veterans Day celebration will be a wonderful opportunity for local residents to honor our veterans and remember those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom."
