Camden Clark Foundation


The Camden Clark Foundation’s mission is to develop relationships and financial resources to support the health care programs, projects and services at WVU Medicine Camden Clark.

Generous donations from our community, patients and their families as well as our physicians and employees have enabled us to help identify and eliminate barriers to care in our community since 1987.


The Camden Clark Nursing Alumnae will award two $ 1,500.00 scholarships in memory of Ella Bloomheart and Barbara Fonte to nursing students completing their first year of an accredited school of nursing. The recipients will be notified, and the scholarships will be awarded in May 2022.

Following are the criteria for the scholarship application:

  • provide written documentation of acceptance to a Registered Nurse program accredited by the National League of Nursing (NLN) or CCNE (Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education)
  • live in the area served by Camden Clark Medical Center, which includes 11 counties in West Virginia and Ohio.
  • be currently enrolled and have completed one year as a nursing student.
  • The scholarship must be used within the next academic year.

Application deadline is April 22, 2022.

Never has it been clearer that there is a strong connection between mind, body and spirit. A tranquil comfortable space can lead to better patient outcomes and mindfulness. We all know someone who has had chemotherapy as part of their treatment plan for cancer. A healing environment can help reduce any patient’s anxiety and stress, but it’s especially important to those patients who are dealing with cancer.
The Camden Clark Foundation is working to make treatment for our cancer patients more comfortable. The goal of “Project Chair-ity” is to raise funds to purchase 30 new treatment chairs featuring heat and massage. The cost for this project is $150,000.

CPR Can Save 200,000 Lives

Whose life will you save today? A grandfather or grandmother? A son or a daughter?
Statistics show the earlier CPR is initiated, the greater the chances of survival. In fact, the American Heart Association estimates 100,000 to 200,000 lives of adults and children could be saved each year if CPR were performed early enough. We know CPR can save lives. Help us provide exceptional technology & extraordinary care as we embrace innovation for life.

LUCAS Mechanical Chest Compression Device

Thousands of people depend on Camden Clark’s emergency medical services in Wood, Ritchie, Wirt, Pleasants, Jackson, Calhoun, Tyler, Washington, and Athens counties in West Virginia and Ohio—with many emergencies occurring in the most rural parts of these
counties. When seconds count, we want our first responders to have exceptional technology to provide extraordinary care. Which is why your gift will support the Camden Clark Foundation’s goal of placing a LUCAS mechanical chest compression device in each of our Camden Clark ambulances.
