MCRC's Winchel speaks at April Chamber luncheon
The monthly luncheon of the Morgantown-Butler County Chamber of Commerce was held on Thursday April 24th. The event was slated to begin at noon with the guests engaging in a meal prepared by the Butler County Homemakers and consisting of various items including lasagna, rolls, green beans, and mashed potatoes as well as a variety of sugar free drinks and desserts. Tiffany Winchel of Morgantown Care and Rehabilitation Center, was the guest speaker.
Winchel began the presentation by underlining the vision and mission of MCRC (Morgantown Care and Rehabilitation Center). She discussed various aspects of MCRC including the clinic, recent renovations, the rehabilitation facility, the quality of life to be expected at MCRC, the volunteer program, spiritual services offered to the residents, and clarification of precisely what covers SNF (Skilled Nursing Facility) services.
MCRC has recently achieved impressive clinical outcomes with respect to resident falls, weight loss, pressure ulcers, and urinary tract infections. This was made even more profound when juxtaposed with state and national averages, which are much higher.
A $1,000,000 renovation operation has been recently completed at MCRC, as well. The renovation sparked the advent of flat panel televisions in each and every residents room, as well as new electric beds, decor, flooring, and paint. The entire first floor was also converted to private suites. The facility now houses 24 private suites.
Following Winchel's presentation James Runion took the floor to remind everyone of the upcoming Spring Fling event scheduled for Saturday, May 3rd from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m., as well as the Green River Catfish Festival meeting, which was to be held immediately following the chamber luncheon.
