Washington County Hospital & Nursing Home prides itself in being an award winning hospital for excellence in health care. Despite all of the recent improvements to the facility and services, in rural areas like ours, providing quality healthcare within the hospital walls is often not enough. The Nursing Home in particular is always looking for new ways to provide the best quality of life to senior citizen residents who depend upon WCHNH for daily care and activities. WCHNH has gone above and beyond to bring in cultural programs, recreational activities, and educational enrichment for the enjoyment of the residents of the Nursing Home. However, many residents have expressed a desire to “get out” and get involved in the many fun and beneficial activities offered throughout the community. As a result, the CareVan project was initiated. The CareVan will provide transportation to and from doctor appointments. It will also provide residents with opportunities for shopping trips, eating out, and participation in community events and activities. WCHNH thanks Ala-Tom RC&D Council for playing a role making this possible for our residents.
