Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute Outpatient Ambulatory and Education Tower

This state-of-the-art Neuroscience Ambulatory and Education tower is scheduled to open April of 2020. The tower will bring together the Departments of Neurosurgery, Neurology, and the new Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. The tower will also house office and educational space, ambulatory clinics, procedure rooms, imaging suites, as well as multidisciplinary spine, stroke, and other centers.

Erma Byrd Biomedical Research Center

We’ve brought state-of-the-art technology to our operating rooms on our main campus in Morgantown. In April of 2018, we opened four SMART operating suites for neurosurgery that offer modular solutions and enhanced efficiencies. The new suites have been especially critical as we expand our capabilities in the area of epilepsy surgery and deep brain stimulation.

WVU Medicine Center for Hope and Healing

The new Center for Hope and Healing is offering world-class detox and treatment programs for people struggling with substance use disorder, spearheaded by a capable and compassionate group of experts.
