GRAFTON—With restrictions beginning to lift, as the county continues to navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic, Grafton City Hospital (GCH) would like to remind residents that the facility offers top-notch care to patients.
When looking for a provider to help ensure your health is at its best, individuals won’t have to look any further than Grafton City Hospital. Hospital officials would like to introduce some of their providers, to better help residents select the care that’s right for them.
Dr. Andrew Berardinelli is an American Board of Family Medicine certified Family Medicine Specialist and has been serving patients in the emergency room and throughout the hospital since his arrival in July 2017.
Berardinelli, who is originally from Connecticut, attended undergraduate school at Emory University, in Atlanta, Ga. Following graduation, he worked there for three and a half years, and took part in research centered around gastrointestinal pathology.
He then attended the American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine, in St. Martin.
Berardinelli noted that he completed two more years of learning in New York, before making his way to West Virginia.
“I then completed my residency at United Hospital Center in Bridgeport,” Berardinelli shared. “I enjoyed West Virginia so much that not only did I decide to stay and work here in Grafton, but I was able to get my family to move here, as well.”
In his spare time, he loves to enjoy the beautiful scenery that can be found outdoors in the state, with his wife and two daughters.
Berardinelli serves as the Director of the Grafton Recovery Center, the Behavioral Health Unit Director, as well as the Director of the Comprehensive Opioid Addiction Treatment Program (C.O.A.T.) at GCH. He also sees patients in the Tygart Valley Total Care Clinic.
