Technicians who deliver home health equipment, physical therapists who get patients back on their feet, pharmacists and nurses and doctors and all of the administrators who make their jobs possible—living through a pandemic has given the staff of WV Living a fresh appreciation for the many thousands of people across the state who dedicate their days to keeping all of us healthy.
Employee Health Coordinator
Mountain Health Network, Huntington
For as long as Melanie Crum can remember, she wanted to be a nurse. She’s done just that for 32 years. Crum took the lead during this past year, putting in long hours, keeping coworkers and patients safe, checking in on sick employees, conducting contact tracing, and guiding her health care community through an unprecedented time. Most of her work has been behind the scenes, but every minute has been key to delivering patient care across the Mountain Health Network.
