WVU Medicine Indoor Wayfinding


Each year, hundreds of thousands of people visit WVU Medicine J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital, in Morgantown, West Virginia. Some are patients, while others are spending time with a loved who is hospitalized. And some are accompanying a friend or family member who is having a medical procedure or test performed.

The new WVU Medicine app makes it easy to navigate the hospital and track a patient’s status. The app:

  • Routes guests through all publicly-accessible areas on levels one through four of the hospital; that includes lobbies and waiting areas, clinical departments, cafeteria, Starbucks, and gift shop.
  • Routes guests to the nurses’ station on levels five through 10 of the hospital.
  • Updates guests on the status of a patient during a procedure or test; there are event push notifications if you opt-in.
  • Allows users to provide feedback about their experience at the hospital.

The app will continue to expand to meet the needs of patients and visitors. Please watch for updates.
