Welcome to Wetzel County Hospital, a managed and clinical affiliate of WVU Medicine.  Through our affiliation with WVU Medicine we are able to bring you the right care, at the right place, at the right time.  We are committed to providing every patient with the highest quality and compassionate care right in their own backyard. 

Wetzel County Hospital has a storied history and we are continuing to stay true to our mission – to be the provider of choice for the residents located in our primary and secondary service areas.  That commitment means bringing you cutting-edge medical technology enabling you to stay in your community to receive excellent health care.  Our affiliation with WVU Medicine is bringing “big-city” care to our patients though technology called Telemedicine.  Coming soon is a Virtual Intensive Care Unit where patients will have monitoring by WVU Medicine Ruby Memorial Hospital’s intensive care unit physicians.  Telestroke is also available at WCH because we know that time is of the essence for a patient exhibiting stroke symptoms.  Through Telestroke, a patient will be diagnosed and receive treatment recommendations by WVU Medicine’s stroke team within 10-15 minutes of arriving to our emergency department.  This is state-of-the-art technology that will save lives in our rural community.

And, that brings me to our emergency department.  We are pleased to have a new team on board with six new board-certified, emergency medicine physicians.  In an emergency we understand that you need expert, efficient, and compassionate care and we are committed to delivering that care. 

Our Mission is to be your provider of choice.  Our Vision is to provide compassionate care for the residents of our service area and to care for our patients consistent with quality, cost effectiveness, and safety.  Our mission and vision are shared by the physicians, nurses, care providers, and staff at Wetzel County Hospital.
