Mon Health System contributes to community wellness and well-being beyond our company walls.
Employees throughout the health system provide service to many programs through volunteer efforts or as part of their job responsibilities.
HealthFair is our premier community outreach effort.
It is held the last weekend of February each year at the Morgantown Mall. A tradition for more than 30 years, the community responds enthusiastically to the low-cost (or free) diagnostic testing and education. Every company within Mon Health System participates with information about their services, and most clinical departments within Mon General Hospital offer health testing. Several of our physicians and their offices participate and so do many health-related non-profit organizations.
The LifeStride Walking Program is a free, supervised walking group designed to emphasize cardiovascular conditioning.
The Zelda Stein Weiss Cancer Awareness and Early Detection Project
was started October 1992. It was funded by Zelda’s sisters who made a
generous donation to The Foundation of Mon General to create the Cancer
Awareness and Early Detection Project in her honor. Since its inception, the program has provided low cost cancer
screenings and cancer information to the residents of Morgantown and the
surrounding region, including Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA)
screenings and skin cancer screenings.
The Look Good Feel Better is an American Cancer Society program designed to help cancer patients look good and feel better about themselves as they undergo cancer treatment. Find a Look Good Feel Better Program at Mon General Hospital.
Mon Health System is the presenting sponsor for Girls on the Run of North Central West Virginia, which combines training for a 5K (3.1 miles) running event with healthy living education. Our programs instill self-esteem and strong values through health education, life skills development, mentoring relationships, and physical training – all of which are accomplished through an active collaboration with girls and their parents, schools, volunteers, staff and the community.
Partners In Education is a collaboration with Brookhaven Elementary to provide the students with an awareness of, and the experience of, community service. This partnership earned national recognition for excellence in 2005 as one of the six best in the country.
