OUR MISSION

Providing world-class heart and vascular care to the state and beyond

Our mission is to provide the best possible heart and vascular care for our patients here in West Virginia, surrounding regions and beyond.

We are succeeding thanks to:

The Critical Care and Trauma Institute has established a new Virtual Intensive Care V-ICU program designed to provide remote access to quality care while simultaneously reducing the numbers of patients that will require transfer from their home location to a higher level medical facility like Ruby Memorial Hospital.  Additionally, we expect this will reduce the strain on families by keeping more patients close to home and it will relieve pressure on an already stretched EMS transportation system as well.  The potential benefits of this program for healthcare across West Virginia and our local communities are exciting.

Currently this program is operational at Potomac Valley Hospital in Keyser and numerous other facilities including Garrett Regional Medical Center, St. Joe, Reynolds, Wetzel and Camden Clark are under consideration for expansion of this program.

This has allowed us to be the first in the state to successfully perform some of the latest cutting-edge procedures, including the first to:

  • Implant a left ventricular assist device (LVAD)
  • Repair a mitral valve through a tiny incision in the chest using the da Vinci® Surgical System
  • Implant the Tendyne Bioprosthetic Mitral Valve and the WATCHMAN™ Left Atrial Appendage Closure Device
  • Use the MitraClip® device to repair a leaking mitral valve
  • Rebuild an aortic valve using the patient’s own heart lining
  • Fix a thoracic aortic aneurysm using the Relay PRO implant
  • Successfully perform the Protected TAVR
  • Implement SMART Mobile Technology at the clinic level

Becoming a Leader in Cardiovascular Research
