Mountain Health Network and Pleasant Valley Hospital Sign Joint Management Services Agreement
Pleasant Valley Hospital (PVH) and Mountain Health Network, Inc., have finalized a Management Services Agreement for its hospital and nursing & rehabilitation center.
This agreement replaces the previous agreement PVH entered into with Cabell Huntington Hospital (CHH) in December 2013. The new agreement was approved by the PVH Board of Directors on January 28, 2019 and Mountain Health Board of Directors on March 5, 2019.
“For the past five years, PVH and CHH have had a positive working relationship that has benefited the residents of Mason, Jackson and surrounding counties,” stated Michael Mullins, FACHE, president and CEO, Mountain Health Network. “The combination of shared common goals, dedicated staff, and quality patient care has formed a strong foundation for success that we intend to build upon.”
“The affiliation with CHH has strengthened PVH’s core services as well as specialty services and I am confident that the new agreement with Mountain Health will further expand access,” stated Glen Washington, FACHE, CEO of PVH. “We have been able to better meet the medical needs of more patients at PVH, while having the assurance of access to a tertiary care hospital and Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine specialists.”
Established in 1959, Pleasant Valley Hospital is a not-for-profit healthcare system that provides community-oriented healthcare for Mason and Jackson counties in West Virginia and the counties of Gallia and Meigs in Ohio. The 201-bed facility includes a 101-bed acute care facility, a 100-bed nursing & rehabilitation center, three medical equipment sites and a full-range of rehabilitation services. PVH also operates 13 medical clinics. Pleasant Valley Hospital will continue to retain its name and continue as full-service, separate hospital in Point Pleasant with its own medical staff and employees.
