WVU Medicine, Glenville State officials celebrate opening of clinic


GLENVILLE — Officials from the WVU Health System and Glenville State College officially announced the opening of the new WVU Medicine clinic at the Waco Center near the College at 921 Mineral Road. They did so as the clinic unveiled its new WVU Medicine-branded signage today (Feb. 2). The 10,600 square foot clinic houses space for the WVU Medicine  specialty services of Dermatology, Neurology, Pain Management, and Rheumatology.

“We are so glad to have WVU Medicine as our partners in providing high quality healthcare to our community. While they have been caring for our residents for a couple of months now, the unveiling of the new signage makes it feel a little more official and signals to the community that the clinic is open for business,” Sandy Pettit, president of the Glenville State College Foundation, said. “Having expanded medical services in Glenville has been a long-time goal of the Foundation, and our partnership with WVU Medicine has helped us achieve that goal.”

The WVU Health System also announced that it plans to add several additional services in the next several months, including Endocrinology, Nephrology, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Weight Management.

The clinic serves as a gateway for Gilmer County residents to access the WVU Medicine network of specialists and hospitals.

“We are thrilled to mark the opening of this new clinic and welcome the residents of Glenville and Gilmer County into the WVU Medicine family,” Michael A. Grace, Ed.D., M.B.A., F.A.C.H.E., president of WVU Hospitals and chief administrative officer of the WVU Health System, said. “It is our sincere hope that we can bring much-needed specialty services to the area and meet the healthcare needs of the community right here close to their homes.”
