Last week, I had the privilege of participating in the 20-year anniversary celebration at our Frostburg Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (FNRC). I was honored to provide remarks to the residents and their families as well as our employees and volunteers.
Just prior to finalizing the affiliation between Memorial and Sacred Heart Hospitals to form the Western Maryland Health System, Sacred Heart acquired Frostburg Hospital with the intent of transitioning the hospital to a nursing home. When the health system was formed, FRNC, then St. Vincent DePaul Nursing Center, became part of WMHS. There are still a handful of staff who have been a part of nursing home since its inception, and some who were even employees of Frostburg Hospital. We have been so blessed with the staff and leadership of the facility.
I heard so many positive comments from our residents and their families while I was at the event. I am both pleased and proud to be associated with such individuals. Congratulations!
