WEIRTON — Weirton Medical Center is honoring its 1,400 staff members during observances of National Hospital Week, which began Sunday.

A variety of activities are planned as a way to thank the staff for their role in the hospital’s growth, according to WMC officials.

“The commitment of each member of the WMC team has been key to our continuing to expand in services and reputation across the three state region,” said John Frankovitch, president and CEO. “Every day seems to bring a new set of challenges as we close a difficult chapter in healthcare and progress toward normal operation but our team has risen to the occasion yet again,” Frankovitch continued.

Hospital leadership says it has heard countless stories of sacrifice and compassion over the past year that puts a spotlight on the important role the people of WMC have played in our community.

“The kindness, dedication, selflessness and determination form the foundation for WMC to continue to be the exceptional hospital it is now and into the future,” adds Lisa Conti, chief nursing officer/executive vice president, Physician Practices.

The theme this year for National Hospital Week is “Inspiring Hope through Healing.”

WMC will be welcoming food trucks for employees, including free ice cream from Brewster’s Ice Cream, as well as daily gift drawings and free meals to say thanks for the role each member of the WMC team plays every day.
