The Emergency Medicine Department at J.W. Ruby Memorial provides around-the-clock, comprehensive emergency care to sick and injured individuals from West Virginia and neighboring states. Free valet parking service is available at the entrance to the emergency department 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We suggest that our patients with medical issues that need immediate but not emergency treatment visit one of the WVU Urgent Care locations. These walk-in clinics provide a complete range of medical treatment for minor illness and injury. A WVU physician trained in emergency medicine is always on site during clinic hours. Wait times are generally much shorter at Urgent Care locations for patients with non-life-threatening conditions.
