WVU Medicine Children’s and WVU Medicine Jackson General Hospital have entered into a program affiliation to help serve the children of Jackson County and the surrounding region.

Together, providers will have the ability to give an enhanced level of care to infants, children, and adolescents close to home.

This collaboration will provide state-of-the-art, nationally recognized pediatric care for families in the Jackson County through access to sub-specialty care, preventive care, research, and education programs.

“WVU Medicine Children’s and Jackson General share a dedication to improving children’s health,” Amy L. Bush, BSN, MBA, RN, CNOR, WVU Medicine Children’s chief operating officer, said. “We look forward to an alliance that will provide families access to the best of both of our organizations. Together, we will advance patient care by keeping children’s wellbeing at the center of all we do.”
