Wheeling Hospital

Wheeling Hospital plans to replace its continuous care center with a new $22 million facility.

The hospital has filed a notice of intent with the West Virginia Health Care Authority that it plans to seek a certificate of need for the project.

Hospital spokesman Gregg Warren tells The Intelligencer and Wheeling News-Register that the notice is the first required step in the process.

Warren says details of the project would be released if it is approved and the hospital decides to move forward.

The hospital plans to renovate the existing Bishop Joseph H. Hodges Continuous Care Center for other purposes.
