Marshall Health Holds Grand Opening

More Than 50 Thousand Square Feet
Of State-Of-The Art Health Care

Marco and Ronald Reagan Foster

Putnam County Commissioner Ronald Reagan Foster knows that local health care is vital.

“I was 38-years-old,” he remembers. “Something felt wrong. I rushed to the doctor. He told me, ‘You are having a heart attack.’ Not, ‘You had a heart attack. You ARE having a heart attack.’ Because I had access to immediate health care, I can talk about it now.”

In an era of health-care-privacy laws, Foster was candid, when he was invited to speak at the Grand Opening of the Marshall Health center, in Scott Depot, Saturday, June 10th, 2017.

“Marshall is making a massive step for improved health care, in Putnam County,” states Foster. “Putnam County was selected by Marshall Health for a 51,000 square foot Multi-disciplinary medical facility. Today was the grand opening celebration. It was an honor to be selected as one of the speakers for this special occasion. Putnam County welcomes Marshall Health and appreciates the selection of Putnam County for this facility.”

That commitment is headed by President and CEO Beth Hammers, who was part the festivities.

“We have been a leader, in Putnam County, for decades,” Hammers remembers. “Now we are under one roof, with expanded facilities to improve the quality of life of our patients in a more convenient location.”

The grand opening came a little more than 2 months after covered the “soft opening.”

Along with the unveiling of the plaque, there was plenty of fun. Marshall’s cheerleaders entertained guests.

Dignitaries, including Foster, (R), United States Congressman Evan Jenkins, (R-3rd) and West Virginia Senator Glenn Jeffries (D-8th) showed their support.

Face painting and delicious food was provided for everyone.

In addition to expanded health care, Marshall is continuing to staff the medical center. If you would like to apply for a job, please click on
