Our Team

  • Luella Gunter,

    Executive Director of Philanthropy

    Since 2019, Luella Gunter, has led the Mon Health Medical Center Foundation as its Executive Director. Luella brings over 25 years of experience to our hospital system and strives to work with the hospital staff to keep community healthcare strong for years to come. Luella would like to thank all the community members who find it in their hearts to support the Foundation mission. Your investment in healthcare translates into making a real difference in the lives of families within North Central West Virginia.

    "What our Foundation does year after year is support those physicians and caregivers with what we like to think of as the Margin of Excellence - that something extra that supports the medical mission. I am proud of our Foundation mission, seeing firsthand the authentic dedication our caregivers have to our community."

    • Laura McCall,

      Senior Director of Philanthropy

      As the newest member of the team, Laura McCall brings extensive experience in fund development, capital campaigns, and planned giving to the Mon Health Foundation. With a track record of success, she helped secure over $75 million in private support from individuals, corporations, and foundations in her previous roles. She is a dynamic fundraising executive who fosters collaboration, improves processes, and makes data-driven decisions for long-term growth and sustainability. In this newly created position, she works closely with the executive director to develop and execute innovative strategies to advance the Foundation’s ambitious fundraising goals as Mon Health continues to expand their footprint in the region and beyond. 

      "Fundraising is much more than the monies received. It’s about the people and building relationships, aligning priorities, telling stories, and demonstrating impact. It’s an exciting time at Mon Health and I’m thrilled to be part of the team.”

"I had a women come in yesterday from Doddridge County to get a wig. She immediately found one and was blown away by all that we had. After she put her wig on, she turned to me and said, “It was getting to the point where I would look in the mirror and not even recognize myself – but I do now!”"
