We’re often quick to point the finger at nursing homes and long-term care facilities that receive negative ratings, so we were happy to hear that Fulton County Medical Center Long Term Care in McConnellsburg has received AdvisorMed’s 2012 Great Pennsylvania Nursing Home award.
According to an article on PublicOpinionOnline.com, the award recognizes nursing centers that offer services that consistently exceed their residents’ expectations.
