Our History

Special Touch Nursing Services, Inc. was established in May of 1990 by Jessica Thomas. Mrs. Thomas was inspired to go into business by her mother Maxine Lamar who has also been in the health profession for over 50 years. Mrs. Thomas decided to step out into faith and started her business from the basement of her home. Since the beginning, she has had to overcome many obstacles but due to her passion for helping care for the aging and disabled, she has continued to persevere. Her company has grown from a 3-man operation to a 100-plus corporation with many loyal employees that have been with her for well over 20 years.

Mrs. Thomas began her medical career as a Nursing Assistant for Thomas Memorial Hospital. She received her LPN certification from Mercer County Vocational School and her RN degree from University of Charleston.

Being a woman of faith, Mrs. Thomas has often shared this nugget of inspiration, “Don’t give up, trust in God and he will bring it to pass”. She continues to model the way for her faith driven business and is deeply committed to ensuring that there is a SPECIAL TOUCH placed upon every aspect of care that is provided to you or your loved one.
