Memorial Health System Employs Three ANU Graduates and Serves as Externship Site

The Parkersburg Campus recently presented the Distinguished Community Employer award to Memorial Health System in recognition of their continued support of career education. The Memorial Health System is a not-for-profit health system governed by a volunteer board of community members that are committed to providing comprehensive services that meet the needs of our region. They are comprised of a network of two hospitals, outpatient service sites, assisted and long-term care facilities, and a retirement community. Memorial Health System currently employs three ANU graduates. In addition, Memorial Health System supports the education of healthcare professionals by providing hands-on clinical and administrative experience to numerous ANU externs.  


“From our founding, our board has believed in growing our own, not just for ourselves but to benefit the community as a whole,” said Cynthia Carpenter, director of quality and educational services. “We have always supported education, and this is one of the key ways we can help within the community.”


The Parkersburg Campus is honored to be working with Memorial Health System in helping students and graduates to not only have a better future for themselves, but to contribute to a better future for their communities through education. Both organizations look forward to a long, beneficial relationship. 


(L to R) Memorial Health System employees Roseanne Brooks, education services assistant; Brooke Henderson, BSN, RN, CRRN; Cynthia L. Carpenter, director of quality and educational services; Angela Tucker, medical librarian; and Aimee Phillips, educational services specialist, accept the Distinguished Community Employer award.
