Gary, WV (WOAY) – West Virginia Health Care Association (WVHCA) names Anna Schrader as 2022 Certified Nursing Assistant of the Year.

The Association presented Schrader with the award at the annual WVHCA banquet recognizing the most skilled nursing and assisted living centers across West Virginia.

Schrader has worked at the McDowell Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (NRC) for over 15 years dedicating herself to making every resident feel at home.
