Through the generosity of William F. Thiel, a trust was established to address health care needs in Wyoming County. Seed money from the Thiel Trust has evolved into a comfortable and restful eight-bed Hospitality House. The Hospitality House is located above and behind the hospital. The Thiel House is handicapped accessible but does not provide patient care. Individuals or families facing a health care crisis, on-call or visiting medical professionals and others may stay at Thiel House. In addition, half the house is committed for use by health professions and medical students willing to do a rural rotation in our county. It is our hope that their experience will lead some of them to choose Wyoming County or other local rural communities as their future home, ensuring that the necessary mix of health professionals is available in rural communities.
