Trinity Health System is honored to have been named Business of the Year by the Follansbee Chamber of Commerce! As you can see from the following article by Warren Scott of the Weirton Daily Times, we were in good company:

During the Follansbee Chamber of Commerce’s annual dinner Wednesday, Chamber President Eric Fithyan noted the diversity in the businesses nominated for the organization’s Business of the Year award.

And the same could be said for others honored at the event held at St. Francis Centre…

…Named Business of the Year was Trinity Health System, which provides an array of medical services to more than 200,000 patients through its two campuses, the Tony Teramana Cancer Center, local physician offices and other facilities.

Fithyan noted Trinity is part of CommonSpirit Health, a nonprofit, Catholic health system that has provided $4.2 billion in charity care, community benefit and unreimbursed government programs through healthcare facilities in 21 states.

Trinity also has served in recent years as advertising sponsor for Follansbee Christmas in the Park, a yearly festival that raises funds for local causes.
