36 new physicians are welcomed to the valley and to Camden Clark Medical Center's team of Dr.'s.

The health professionals were introduced Saturday night at the King and Queen of Hearts Reception held at The Parkersburg Country Club.

Physicians from around the U.S. and the world joined the community to celebrate.

CCMC President and CEO, Michael King says physicians are the core to the community and with so many new professionals coming to the area, it opens up the doors for a better and healthier Mid-Ohio Valley.

"Physicians are the core of healthcare and the core of the community so as physicians retire, we kind of replenish or refresh the medical staff in addition sometimes new specialties are introduced. I think the other thing physicians do, of course they bring their families they really do add to the community. They staff a lot of our clinics around town. They open their doors and are and essential part, vital part of our community."

    While I agree that it is wonderful that there are many new doctors in the area, it simply AMAZES me that they hold a reception like this every year for the doctors. While the common employees have not received a raise in 3 years, a notice was sent out there would be as much as a 3% raise for some positions at the hospital, although insurance rates were going up 10% this year as well. And let's not forget the Parkersburg user fee. It has been drilled into the employees heads that the hospital needs to save money anyway possible, but yet, they can throw a big reception at the country club, and spare no expense....amazing...
