He has implemented a unique and award-winning dining program and always strived to be a leader in the industry. I'm excited after speaking with Steve Altmiller, and the team at WVU Medicine Camden Clark that our facility will continue to provide the same standard quality of care. This is such a great opportunity to offer a continuum of care for the communities we serve."
