McDaniel Sleep Center opens
The McDaniel Sleep Center, located near the Minges Wellness Center, was opened July 2 after this unused area of the facility was revamped. The center was named for the McDaniel family whose ancestors donated a home to be used as the first hospital in Lenoir County. The McDaniel’s granddaughter, Laura McDaniel Walker of Long Beach, Calif., made a generous donation and named the center in memory of the original donors, he said. “I’m grateful that (the family) thought of the idea to name the whole center,” Griffith said. The development of the new sleep center was partially funded by $180,000 in donations, said Dirk Griffith, director of the LMH Foundation Board. Each room has its own personality and exhibits a plaque designating a donor’s name. They look like typical bedrooms, but with state-of-the-art medical equipment in them. The rooms even feature a flat-screen television and are individually temperature-controlled. “The new suites have nice large bathrooms for each room,” Dail said.LEARN MORE
