Stonerise Healthcare to Acquire Randolph County Care Centers

By Stonerise

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (October 15, 2020) — Stonerise Healthcare (Stonerise), a provider of innovative healthcare solutions for patients throughout West Virginia and southeast Ohio, announced plans today to acquire two nursing homes in Randolph County. By December 31, 2020, Nella’s Inc. and Nella’s Nursing Home in Elkins, WV will become part of the Stonerise Network.

Nella’s Inc. is a 100-bed long-term care and rehabilitation center and Nella’s Nursing Home, Inc. is an 84-bed long-term care and rehabilitation center. Together, they employ nearly 200 people. Both centers have been family-owned for more than 60 years and are known for providing quality care to seniors throughout West Virginia.

“I have valued a long-standing relationship with the Eidell family for several decades,” said Steve White, co-founder of Stonerise. “I have always admired the family-like culture maintained at Nella’s and know that their team members and patients will experience a smooth transition into the Stonerise Network because we share very similar philosophies on providing loving, quality care and putting patients first.”

All employees of Nella’s will be retained and Stonerise will honor all years of service and tenure.

“Nella’s founder Nella Pennington wanted to be a missionary, but she found her real calling in caring. She was a trailblazer for progressive care in our community and in West Virginia. We are proud to say our family has carried on with the mission to provide quality person-centered care for over 67
years. We have always strived to grow and improve. We feel that this transition with Stonerise will enable Nella’s to progress as our founder envisioned, and provide exciting new opportunities for our staff and residents,” said Shasta Eidell, Administrator of Nella’s Nursing Home, Inc.

The Stonerise leadership team is scheduled to meet with Nella’s team members.

“We feel very blessed for the opportunity to expand our footprint into Randolph County and continue serving this community with short- and long-term care needs. We will embrace all Nella’s team members into the Stonerise family,” said Larry Pack, CEO and co-founder of Stonerise.

The Randolph County acquisition will increase the number of Stonerise centers in West Virginia from 17 to 19.
