Hospitals Work Together to Share Knowledge

Princeton Community Hospital is affiliating with Charleston Area Medical Center to expand and improve its services. A clinical affiliation agreement recently approved by the Princeton hospital's Board of Directors follows three years of strategic planning. Princeton Community Hospital chief operating officer Jeffrey E. Lilley tells the Bluefield Daily Telegraph that the affiliation will allow both hospitals to share knowledge and expertise. He says the affiliation is focusing on cardiology and cancer treatment. A future goal is to develop rural residency rotations at the Princeton hospital.
