Your Gifts at Work
Davis Health System is committed to bringing better health to life. This begins by promoting the importance of safe sleep, proper nutrition, and early childhood brain development in ensuring the health and wellbeing of each child.
Together with our Partner in Caring, Davis Trust Company, Davis Health System Foundation presents a Davis Baby Bundle to the family of each newborn at Davis Medical Center.
Each Davis Baby Bundle includes:
A Halo® Sleep Sack Infant Swaddle and safe sleep education materials
A car window sun safety screen
A Watching Baby Grow® keepsake calendar
A David Medical Center Family Birthing Center baby beanie
A bath safety thermometer
A complimentary copy of Mother & Baby Care Guide for the First Days and Week,
A hydration water bottle
A travel diaper bag with changing pad
In addition to specially selected welcome gifts, each Davis Baby Bundle is accompanied with educational materials for new parents and enrollment in both Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and Davis Medical Center’s provider-based Reach Out and Read program.
Your cancer care at Davis Medical Center has one goal: restoring your health. We provide world-class radiation and medical oncology treatment, yet this same treatment can have a temporary negative impact on your appearance and overall well-being. LiveWell is a program of the Davis Health System Foundation for men and women undergoing cancer treatment. Presented in partnership with our Partner in Caring Mountain Valley Bank, the information provided by our DMC Cancer Care Center and the products included in your complimentary gift bag will comfort and protect your skin and help you to look and feel your best during treatment – and beyond.
Reach Out and Read is a provider-based early childhood brain development program that champions the positive effects of reading daily and engaging in other language-rich activities with young children. Reading together promotes healthy brain development, furthers language acquisition, and helps families build meaningful bonds. At each routine check-up for children age five and under, DMC pediatricians equip parents with the knowledge and tools they need and present each child with a complimentary, age-appropriate book of their choice.
Education begins at birth. Education occurs at home, in the community, and in schools.
Davis Health System Foundation proudly supports the 5 Rs of early education with young families:
Reading together as a daily, fun, family activity
Rhyming, playing, talking, and singing together
Building Routines for meals, play, and sleep
Giving Rewards for everyday progress and successes
Developing Relationships that are nurturing and lasting and are the foundations of healthy early brain and child development
The Davis House
The Davis House offers cancer patients and a family member a “home-away-from-home” when it is necessary to travel for their treatment. Here, they focus on their care and healing without the worry of frequent travel or the cost of local lodging. We believe that keeping families close makes the hardship of cancer treatment just a little easier.
Completed in 2012, the Davis House offers six private guest suites. In addition to no-cost lodging, the house provides free on-site laundry facilities, convenient parking, and handicap access. One and two-bed-suites are available and each includes:
• Private bath and kitchenette
• Comfortable sitting area
• Individual temperature control
• Internet access
The Davis House is located on the campus of Davis Medical Center, convenient to the Cancer Care Center and the comprehensive medical, diagnostic, and outpatient services of Davis Medical Center. Downtown Elkins is also just
minutes away and provides opportunities for shopping, dining and recreation.

At Davis Health System, we don’t believe anyone should avoid or delay important medical care because of cost. Davis Medical Center’s PACE Program (Providing Affordable Care for Everyone) and the DHS Foundation can help. The Guardian Angel Patient Assistance Fund and the Noronha Fund provide financial support to DMC patients for medically necessary prescriptions, supplies, and services that contribute directly to their overall health, wellness, and quality of life – including surgical procedures, Orthopedic Nutritional Counseling, and Chronic Care Management.
