Appalachian Regional Healthcare has finalized its purchase of the Paul B. Hall Regional Medical Center in Paintsville and its associated clinic operations in Johnson and Magoffin counties, making it the 14th member of the ARH system.
The hospital will be renamed Paintsville ARH Hospital.
“We are excited to welcome the nearly 250 team members at Paintsville into the ARH family and look forward to expanding ARH services in the Big Sandy region,” ARH President and CEO Hollie Phillips said in a news release. “As a member of the ARH system, the hospital will benefit from the collective stability and strength of our multi-hospital system while continuing to provide the exceptional level of care for which it has consistently been recognized over the years.”
Rocky Massey, who has served as community CEO for ARH hospitals in West Virginia, will be the interim community CEO for the 72-bed acute-care hospital.
