FAIRMONT, W.Va. — Construction is underway on the Mon Health Marion Neighborhood Hospital at Middletown Commons in White Hall.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held Friday.
The 19,000 square foot facility will have 10 emergency beds, 10 inpatient beds and is valued at about $20 million.
Mon Health Systems proposed the new hospital earlier this year following the closure of the Fairmont Regional Hospital.
“Because many of Marion County residents already know and trust Mon Health for their medical care, we look forward to opening this new hospital to the greater Fairmont area to keep healthcare local for our patients,” Mon Health CEO David Goldberg said. “We thank the Healthcare Authority for its thorough review, analysis and approval.”
Kristina Adrian, executive director of marketing & communications, said the project will be a benefit to the community.
“We are so excited to be here at the groundbreaking of the Mon Health Marion Neighborhood Hospital that will open in 2021,” Adrian said.
This hospital will offer inpatient and outpatient services, diagnostic imaging and lab services, and full-service emergency services.
“This is another great example of providing the right kind of care at the right time,” Adrian said. “We look forward to the positive impact our patient first philosophy will have on those who live and work in this community.”
WVU Medicine, which is currently operating out of the former Fairmont Regional Medical Center, is also building a hospital in Fairmont.
