Because the safety of our patients and caregivers is our highest priority, Braxton County Memorial Hospital has implemented a no-visitor policy in an effort to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
Limited exceptions will be made for end-of-life cases, pediatrics, and OB patients (women in labor). Those patients will still be limited to one visitor. Visitors who are sick will not be permitted to enter WVU Medicine hospitals under any circumstances.

Since the hospital opened in 1980, the Braxton County Memorial Hospital Auxiliary has been providing much-needed service and monetary support. From May 1, 2017, through April 30, 2018, the Auxiliary provided 2,628 hours of service and $9,685 in monetary donations or purchases for the hospital. The Auxiliary consists of both men and women who are looking to make a difference in the community. The Auxiliary is governed by a committee of officers who follow a set of bylaws.
Many volunteer opportunities are available. In addition to volunteer work, the Auxiliary holds several fundraisers throughout the year, including uniform, book, and jewelry sales.
For more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact the hospital at 304-364-5156.
