MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Hiring for the new WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital, set to open in mid-2021, has begun. More than 500 new employees will be hired during the two-phase hiring process.

“Though the construction of the new Hospital is still underway, we have to start recruiting new employees now in order to have enough time to get them hired, through the orientation process, and appropriately trained so they’re ready to hit the ground running when we officially open our doors,” Amy L.
