Glenville State University Jazz Band performs at local nursing home

GLENVILLE — Genesis HealthCare Glenville Center celebrated National Skilled Nursing Care Week in May with several activities – including an outdoor concert featuring the Glenville State University Jazz Band.

The Jazz Band, under the direction of Dr. Jason Barr, performed in the gazebo outside of the facility for the residents and staff at the facility.

“The GSU Saxophone Quartet played at the Glenville Center at Christmas and the residents were so appreciative and had such a good time, so we were more than happy to perform for them again. The weather was perfect for the outdoor performance and it was really a wonderful event,” Barr said. “Kudos to Tammy Stewart for organizing the visit – we appreciate her very much.”

The event also included a cookout and a car show by the Appalachian Cruisers.

Genesis HealthCare Glenville Center offers physical, occupational, and speech therapy services, as well as, long-term, short-term, and respite care.
