Ohio Valley Medical Center, founded in 1890 as City Hospital, is a 200-bed health care facility located in the heart of downtown Wheeling, West Virginia. While the building has been remodeled and greatly expanded throughout the years, the architecture dates back to the Ohio Valley General Hospital School of Nursing that was established on the campus of OVGH in 1892 as the first school of nursing in the state of West Virginia. Ohio Valley Medical Center, in affiliation with the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, is home to an osteopathic medicine residency program offering residencies in internal medicine, emergency medicine, and traditional internal/emergency medicine fields. In addition, OVMC is also home to the OVMC School of Radiologic Technology, a two-year hospital-based education program. As a community-focused hospital, OVMC works closely with local colleges and universities to provide clinical rotations and practical instruction opportunities for healthcare providers of tomorrow.
Founded in 1906 as Martins Ferry Hospital by local physician Dr. R.H. Wilson, East Ohio Regional Hospital is a 140-bed health care facility located in downtown Martins Ferry, Ohio.
