Help West Virginia’s Kids

the need

The demand for pediatric services is growing at such a rapid pace that the creation of a new hospital is a must. If we want to continue to improve the health of our state, the time is now and the place is here – and we need your help. We want every baby and mother to be healthy, cures for childhood illnesses, an end to abuse and neglect, and greater support for behavioral and emotional health.

Make a Donation

WVU Medicine Children’s serves the healthcare needs of hundreds of thousands of children and women in West Virginia and the surrounding region. “Grow Children’s” is a capital campaign to help fund the construction of a new, state-of-the-art children’s hospital on the WVU Medicine campus in Morgantown, WV. The campaign will also help expand clinical programs and establish new ones.
