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.
