Jackson General Hospital to join WVU Health System

Ripley, W. Va.-based Jackson General Hospital will join Morgantown-based West Virginia University Health System pending approval from the West Virginia Health Care Authority.

WVU Hospitals, a subsidiary of WVU Health System, entered into a management agreement with Jackson General Hospital Sept. 1 when Stephanie McCoy, president and CEO of the hospital, became a WVU Hospitals employee. She will remain in her roles at the hospital once it formally joins the system.

"The Board of Directors of Jackson General Hospital strives to ensure the continued presence of Jackson General Hospital as a local hospital for many years to come, focusing on the healthcare of Jackson County and this region," said Rob Fisher, chairman of the Jackson General Hospital board of directors. "It is our belief that Jackson General Hospital's alignment with WVU Medicine will meet the goal of our local hospital allowing us to provide the highest healthcare standards available through a major statewide healthcare system."
