2/21/2022


SCOTT DEPOT, W.Va. - Congresswoman Carol D. Miller (WV-3) and Putnam County officials visited Marshall Health’s multidisciplinary location in Teays Valley today to discuss strategic health care priorities and economic development opportunities for the region.

“We are honored to host Congresswoman Miller’s visit to Putnam County and showcase the Marshall Health facility,” said Beth L. Hammers, M.B.A., chief executive officer of Marshall Health. “We are excited about the growth happening throughout our region, and health care is an important part of that equation.”

Miller’s visit included a tour of the facility and a working luncheon with local leaders from Putnam County, including representatives from Marshall Health, Marshall University, Putnam County Chamber of Commerce, Putnam County Commission and Toyota Motor Manufacturing West Virginia, Inc.

“It was a pleasure to be in Putnam County with the Marshall Health team to tour their Teays Valley facility,” said Congresswoman Miller. “Marshall Health embodies what it means to be a community-centered organization. In addition to their health care services, this outstanding group brings jobs, economic investment, and community outreach to the region. As a member of the Ways and Means Committee, which oversees health care policy, I am committed to making sure Marshall Health has the necessary resources to maintain a robust workforce, continue their community initiatives, and foster innovation. Especially as we emerge from the pandemic, I look forward to our continued partnership to keep West Virginia healthy.”
