The Largest Health System in West Virginia

 The West Virginia United Health System is the largest healthcare system in West Virginia, and the state’s second-largest private employer. Established by the West Virginia Legislature and the voluntary affiliation of several non-for-profit hospitals in 1996, , it now encompasses six acute-care hospitals --  including the flagship Ruby Memorial Hospital on the campus of West Virginia University --  dozens of medical offices, and a diverse network of affiliated organizations.
 
WVUHS member hospitals provide about 25 percent of the inpatient hospital care in the State of West Virginia.
 
With annual revenues exceeding $1.5 billion, WVUHS is investing heavily in healthcare facilities to serve the people of West Virginia. A major expansion program in the Morgantown area is adding beds to Ruby Memorial Hospital and developing off-campus medical offices for University-affiliated physicians.  A $300 million replacement hospital for United Hospital Center in Bridgeport, completed in 2010, serves a large area of central West Virginia.
