The emergency department at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital provides around-the-clock, comprehensive emergency care to sick and injured individuals from across our region. Free valet parking service is available at the entrance to the emergency department 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

While patients with potentially life-threatening conditions should always seek treatment at the emergency department, we suggest that patients with medical issues needing immediate (but not emergency) treatment visit one of WVU Urgent Care’s convenient locations. These walk-in clinics provide a complete range of medical treatment for minor illnesses and injuries.

WVU physicians trained in emergency medicine are always on site during WVU Urgent Care clinic hours and wait times are generally much shorter than those experienced at a busy emergency room, while co-pays for an urgent care visit are significantly less.
