MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Another hospital intends to join the West Virginia University Health System.

Braxton County Memorial Hospital (BCMH) in Gassaway signed a letter of intent to become the ninth hospital in the WVU Medicine family, pending the filing of a Certificate of Need application.

“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,” Albert L. Wright, Jr., president and CEO of the West Virginia University Health System, said in a WVU Medicine statement. “We are proud to welcome Braxton County Memorial Hospital to our system, and we look forward to being a part of that community.”

BCMH is a 25-bed critical access hospital.
