You're Part of Something Special
UHC is the heart of the North Central West Virginia community. Our Vision is to put every patient first, to take health and healing beyond the boundaries of imaginations so that we truly can create a patient experience that is second to none.
To better serve our community, a new hospital was built in 2010. The 692,000 square foot structure rises eight stories. It is designed around the environment with the patient, family, staff and community in mindwhich includes enhanced patient privacy, a high level of technology integration and improved access to care. The acute care facility has 292 private inpatient rooms and 24 observation rooms and 180 active primary care and specialty physicians on the medical staff.
UHC is a member of WVU Medicine, West Virginias premier provider of advanced specialty care and the states only academic medical center. WVU Medicine is West Virginia Universitys affiliated health system. Through its eight hospitals, three institutes, and more than 800 physicians, specialists, and sub-specialists, WVU Medicine provides comprehensive healthcare services to all of West Virginia, Southeast Ohio, Western Maryland, and Southwest Pennsylvania. WVU Medicine, though, is more than a name. WVU Medicine is a promise to everyone that no matter where you see that name, you will find the best in healthcare.
