MVH reaches out to troops

  • February 18, 2013
When employees of Monongahela Valley Hospital learned that Dr. Paul Cervone, an obstetrician/gynecologist with Valley Women’s Health and a colonel in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard, and his fellow soliders in Afghanistan were craving some of their favorite snacks, the Community Relations Department mobilized and organized a care-package drive. Cervone’s wife, Ellen, said the troops missed nuts and dried fruits the most. MVH staff also added some of their favorites, such as peanut butter cups and Rice Krispies treats. Cervone, left, and two of his fellow soldiers display some of the treats they received. wAfter opening the box of treats, Cervone wrote, “I guess it’s more gym time for me.” Cervone is expected back in the next two months and will resume seeing patients in his offices at the hospital and in the HealthPLEX in Belle Vernon in the spring.
