Ronald McDonald House
The Ronald McDonald House is a one-minute walk from the hospital. It provides a "home away from home" for critically ill children and is owned and operated by an independent, non-profit volunteer organization. It is the largest of three such houses in West Virginia. The Rosenbaum Family House is also available for adult patients and their families.
Health Sciences Center
The Health Sciences Center includes more than 1,500 students in Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, and Medical Technology. West Virginia University has also established a School of Public Health. The close proximity of these other health professions schools enhances the educational experience through intensive interdisciplinary interactions. The Center is located on a hilltop overlooking the 146-acre Evansdale campus of West Virginia University.
Childcare facilities for resident children
The hospital has a day care center for children from birth through school age. As hospital employees, residents will have access to this facility for their dependents.
Through our extensive telemedicine network, residents and physicians from across the state have access to our conferences and clinical consultation with faculty on campus.
