Manchin Congratulates Dan Lauffer on His Retirement, Applauds WVU and Thomas Health Agreement

Charleston, WV – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) congratulated Thomas Health CEO, Dan Lauffer, on his retirement and applauded the new management agreement between West Virginia University (WVU) Health System and Thomas Health.

“Thomas Health has provided quality, affordable healthcare to countless West Virginians for more than 80 years. Today’s announcement is the beginning of a new chapter for both Thomas Health and my dear friend Dan Lauffer. Dan has served the people of West Virginia admirably for decades, and Gayle and I wish Dan and his wife Barb happiness in their well-deserved retirement. As WVU and Thomas Health begin this next chapter of healthcare for the Kanawha County region, I will continue working with everyone involved to ensure all West Virginians continue to receive the same quality care Thomas Health has provided for over eight decades.”
