The Center for Women’s Health at St. Joseph’s Hospital honors healthcare professionals

Buckhannon, W.Va. – The Center for Women’s Health at St. Joseph’s Hospital recently honored several healthcare professionals for the valuable role that they play in women’s healthcare. Honored were Physician Assistant Katherine Keely Burnside; Certified Nurse Midwives:  Sarah Hicks, Amanda Ketterman and Kathryn Robinson; and Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer Sarah Riffle.

The commitment and dedication of these professionals ensure that women receive the very best in healthcare. 

“We are really honored to have such knowledgeable and dedicated providers to enhance the care in our community,” said Kimberly Farry, MD.  “It gives patients choices in the kind of health care they want for themselves.”
