Marshall Health-Teays Valley location makes debut in Scott Depot
A year after acquiring the property, the Marshall Health-Teays Valley location has opened to serve its patients in Putnam County under one roof.
Marshall Health-Teays Valley’s 51,000-square-foot building in Scott Depot served previously as Patriot Coal’s corporate headquarters. Patriot Coal filed for bankruptcy two years ago and Marshall Health purchased the property in April 2016. G&G Builders, located next to Marshall Health-Teays Valley, renovated the site, with a makeover that includes an elevator tower for patients’ convenience.
While Marshall Health has provided medical services in the county since the early 1990s, the newly opened facility has consolidated its Hurricane offices into a central site. Outpatient services available include internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics, orthopedics, sports medicine, X-ray imaging and laboratory services. Others are forthcoming in 2017.
Currently, the Teays Valley office has 58 examination rooms, four testing rooms and three procedure rooms on three floors of offices.
“This is the initial phase right now,” Marshall Health Chief Operating Officer Joshua Dorsey said. “We have about 20 to 25 employees now and a physician volume of 15. As we grow, we’ll have more physicians coming in.”
Dorsey said a neurology unit is expected to open later this month, with nephrology and other services to be added throughout the summer and into early fall.
“We’re looking into adding a CT unit, in addition to the X-ray and mammography departments. We’ll also have a sleep lab, in partnership with Cabell Huntington Hospital,” Dorsey said.
“We recognize that Putnam County is a growing area, one of the handful of places in the state that is continuing to grow in population,” he said, adding that the Teays Valley site now relieves current and longstanding patients from having to drive to and from Charleston or Huntington for their appointments and treatments.
A grand opening event for the new location and a community health fair are planned for Saturday, June 10. A dedication ceremony for the new building will begin at 10 a.m. The community health fair will take place from 10:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. A variety of free screenings will be offered, along with tours of the new facility.
Marshall Health is an alliance of health-care providers of Marshall University’s Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine. The Scott Depot facility is one of more than a dozen locations throughout the region that administer health-care services in West Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. Along with Putnam and Cabell, Mountain State counties served by Marshall Health include Mason, Kanawha, Wayne, Mingo and Logan.
Marshall Health Executive Director Beth Hammers said the Teays Valley site will also serve as a training facility for Marshall’s School of Medicine.
