WVU Medicine Uniontown Hospital is a compassionate, dedicated community hospital providing a full range of medical care to residents of Fayette County and the surrounding area for more than a century.

Located in southwestern Pennsylvania, a hub for coal mining and steel production during the industrial revolution, Uniontown Hospital was founded in 1902 in response to the healthcare needs of local miners and coke plant employees. The hospital’s first patient, though, a child who suffered severe burns, arrived by horse-drawn carriage on Thanksgiving Day 1903.

In 2020, Uniontown Hospital joined the West Virginia University Health System with the mission to provide exceptional care, close to home. Since joining the WVU Medicine family, Uniontown Hospital has expanded primary care and specialty care services throughout the county and surrounding areas.

Today, the 145-bed facility employs over 1,000 individuals and is utilized by more than 200 medical staff representing more than 30 medical specialties. In February 2024, Uniontown Hospital was named an Achievement Award Winner by The Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania (HAP) in recognition of the organization’s efforts to engage a workforce around a common purpose: patient safety.
