Webster Springs, W.Va. – Webster County Memorial Hospital (WCMH) is pleased to announce it has been named a 2020 Lilypad Award winner. The Lilypad Award recognizes Rural Health Clinics (RHC) based on their financial and operational performance to peers.
The awards program applies a set of five metrics to rate every RHC in the country and assign Clinic ranks; the aggregate Clinic rank in each state is used to assign an overall State rank. All metrics are derived from the publicly available December 2019 Medicare Cost Report data files.

The patient care they deliver is truly among the best there can be.”
