West Virginia University Health System looks to add 9th hospital

Braxton County Memorial Hospital in Gassaway, W.Va., has signed a letter of intent to joint Morgantown-based West Virginia University Health System.

West Virginia University Health System President and CEO Albert L. Wright Jr., PharmD, expressed excitement about acquiring the 25-bed critical access hospital.

"Braxton County is uniquely positioned right in the center of West Virginia, and it's important for the people who live in the heart of our state to have access to the high-quality healthcare they need," he said in a press release. "We are proud to welcome Braxton County Memorial Hospital to our system, and we look forward to being a part of that community."

The health system said a certificate of need application will be filed with the West Virginia Health Care Authority. If the state approves the transaction and the deal closes, Braxton County Memorial Hospital will be West Virginia University Health System's ninth hospital.
