Fairmont Health Center to Open in 2017


A new clinic will soon offer a variety of healthcare services in Marion County. WVU Medicine broke ground for a new complex located right off of I-79 in Fairmont Monday.

The nearly $14 million facility is scheduled to open in the summer of 2017 and will include 39 exam rooms and three procedure rooms. Its 25,000 square feet will offer patients in the Fairmont area access to primary care, urgent care, and general and vascular surgery, among other services.

The health clinic will be owned and operated by the University Health Associates, an affiliation of WVU Medicine. UHA Chief Medical Officer Judie Charlton says the new facility will increase access to care and provide more options for patients in the area.
