Pikeville Medical Center will not sponsor a Veterans Day celebration this year. Like other hospitals across the country, PMC is experiencing major cuts in reimbursements and is limiting nonessential services.
Meanwhile, the hospital is encouraging its patients and all citizens in the region to pay tribute at an event in the county where they live.
“We always want to be supportive of our veterans,” said PMC President/ CEO Walter E. May. “We encourage everyone to fly their American flags and thank our veterans on November 11.”
