Post Acute and Long Term Care Services in McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania
Family Update week of 1-11-21
Over the weekend we have had a resident test positive which means both units continue to be yellow. We did have a few days we could go green but unfortunately that did not last too long. Staff continue to wear a N-95 mask and eye protection or a face shield as well as a gown and gloves each time they enter a room. The county positiviey rate has increased to 18% so again if we were abel to be green we would still not be able to have visitors for the residents until this is lowered. Staff will continue to be tested twice a week and residents weekly.

The HistoryJust as Dr. MacKinlay saw Fulton County's need for a hospital to be built in the 1950s, a similar need arose to take care of the aged population in the early 1970s. Just before Christmas in 1976 FCMC opened its extended care wing of the hospital. Nineteen residents made FCMC their home permanently. Nine of the 19 residents came from the former Decker Nursing Home.
One year later, FCMC opened their intermediate care unit. FCMC could now offer three levels of care: acute care, intermediate care and skilled care. This would eventually make up the 57 beds that FCMC maintained until 2007 when they moved to their new facility and added an additional 10 beds for individuals needing long term care.
Today, FCMC Long Term Care is very much a vital part of the organization. Health care has dramatically changed since 1970 when the LTC unit was built; however the quality of care, coupled with the family-like atmosphere, has remained unchanged. In 2014 the FCMC nursing home received a four star rating from Medicare.gov.
