PARKERSBURG — United Bank has partnered with 15 hospitals across its service area and provided ice cream treats to health care workers at the front of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

The sweet treats are a token of the bank’s appreciation “for the hard work these health care providers have put in during this time,” the bank said.

United Bank with each of the hospital’s food service vendors distributed the ice cream to hospital employees during all shifts over a 24-hour time period. Distribution was held in cafeterias and the hospital employees were able to pick up the treat of their choice.

“We are excited that we had the opportunity to provide sweet treats as a sign of our appreciation for the healthcare providers in our communities,” said Market President Patrick Bryan. “At United, we value the health and safety of the communities we serve. We wanted to show our thanks and give some encouragement to those that continue to provide such remarkable care to our customers, families and friends every day.”

It has assets of $25 billion with 211 full-service offices and 19 loan origination offices in West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Washington, D.C.
