GRAFTON—The patients, employees and entire Grafton community will have a new state-of-the art skilled nursing, rehabilitation and long-term care center coming in 2022.
Taylor Health Care Center (THCC) has broken ground on a new 46,909 square foot, more than $9.1 million dollar center to replace their current location in the former Wallace B. Murphy Nursing Home connected to Grafton City Hospital.
“This is going to be a great addition for the community,” said THCC Executive Director Phillip Donnelly. “I’m excited for our patients, families and employees who will have the most modern center in the state.
“If you have driven past or visited our sister Bridgeport Health Care Center, you know how special and wonderful this will be for our patients and families,” Donnelly added.
The new THCC will be built adjacent to their current location and nearly doubles the amount of space the center operates in now.
The updated center will feature larger areas for patients to receive therapy, a spacious dining room to enjoy meals, and day rooms for patients and families to enjoy time together. All furniture and decorations will be updated as well.
THCC, a member of the AMFM family since 2017, is a 2020 Silver National Quality Award winner from the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living. The center has received several recognitions since joining the AMFM family, including a statewide award from the West Virginia Health Care Association for the Adult Volunteer Group of the Year in 2019.
AMFM operates 19 skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers throughout West Virginia. The care centers are in Braxton, Boone, Cabell, Clay, Fayette, Hardy, Harrison (Clarksburg & Bridgeport), Greenbrier, Lincoln, Mason, Marshall, McDowell, Mercer, Summers, Taylor, Wayne, Webster, and Wyoming counties.
AMFM’s mission is “to exemplify excellence in quality care to our customers by providing an environment that enhances personal growth, individuality, dignity and respect.”
