"Minnie Hamilton Health System is Dedicated to Maintaining the Health and Improving the Quality of Life of All People in Our Service Area Through an Innovative Delivery System of Services and Education"
Minnie B. Hamilton (1900-1981) was a native of Calhoun County who tirelessly served her community as the Public Health Nurse for more than thirty years.
In 1985, when a new primary care facility was opened in Grantsville, it was named MinnieMinnieHamilton Health System in her honor. During the fall of 1995, when Calhoun General Hospital was nearing closure, the directors of Minnie Hamilton Health System (MHHS) elected to incorporate the hospital building and its operations into their services.
The State of West Virginia assisting through grants and consultants, an affiliation arrangement being formed with Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital, of Weston, and a new Medicare program designation as an EACH/RPCH hospital, all combined to help the new operation get underway.
During 1996, in-patient, out-patient, clinic, emergency and ancillary services were provided, and an average number of eighty employees were on payroll. After six years, the financial report for the year 2001 showed an annual operating budget of $9,000,000 and employment of 180 individuals.
The growth of MHHS and its services has included: a 24- bed long- term care unit, a satellite clinic in Glenville, WV, day-care services, ambulance transport services, school-based health clinics in Calhoun and Gilmer counties, outreach programs, and the addition of physical therapy and CT scan services.
More than $1,000,000 in capital equipment has been acquired since 1996 and various additions and improvements have enhanced the hospital building. Presently, Minnie Hamilton Health System is a 43-bed facility and is designated by Medicare as a Critical Access Hospital.
