Pediatric Inpatient Unit

The inpatient pediatric unit at Thomas Memorial Hospital is an extension of WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital, home to the state’s largest and most experienced group of pediatric specialists. As part of J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital, the WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital is the only organization in West Virginia named a Magnet® hospital for nursing excellence, the highest honor available for nursing care.

The unit includes all-private rooms each with sleeping accommodations that allow a parent or guardian to stay overnight with their child.
