Every three years, non-profit hospitals in the United States are required to gather input from their community members about their health concerns and create plans to address and improve upon the services provided. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey below. Responses to this survey help identify the services and resources that you need and want to see in this area. In 2019, the CHNA survey identified cancer as the number one health-related need in this community. Since that time Grant Memorial Hospital, in affiliation with WVU Cancer Institute opened a new Oncology and Infusion Center at GMH to address that health concern. We greatly value your responses and will continue to offer Compassionate, Safe, and Innovative Healthcare. If you would like to receive a paper copy of this survey, please contact Grant Memorial Hospital at 304-257-5806. https://wvu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_1FxbKB7bBlKDWD4

A message from Superintendent Mitch Webster concerning year books: It has brought me great pleasure to see that this year's yearbooks at PHS went home with students prior to the end of the school year. Moving forward the expectation will be each year to have yearbooks in hand no later than the beginning of the next school year. With that being said, it has been brought to my attention that there are yearbooks from previous years that have been paid for by students, but they have yet to receive them. I have been assured that every student that has paid for a yearbook from a previous year will receive it. It is my goal that this situation will be totally rectified by the end of the upcoming school year if not before. I sincerely apologize that this process has taken entirely too long and I truly appreciate the extreme patience those of you that this pertains to have exhibited. Thank you.
