WHEELING - A Wheeling continuous care center is being sued over claims a resident received inadequate medical care.

Sylvia Ann Szersen, individually and as the executrix of the estate of Martha Ann Markwas, filed suit April 29 in the Circuit Court of Ohio County against Wheeling Hospital Inc., doing business as Bishop Joseph H. Hodges Continuous Care Center, citing negligence.

The plaintiff is seeking an undisclosed amount of damages and is being represented in the case by Moundsville attorney C. Richard Wilson and Pittsburgh attorney Chad P. Shannon.
