Our History

Hampshire Memorial Hospital is a licensed critical access hospital with 14 acute/transitional care beds, 30 long-term care beds and an emergency department in the heart of Romney, West Virginia.

The hospital officially opened to the public on February 2, 1959. Over the years they expanded their services and in 2008, it was the first West Virginia hospital to join Valley Health. Through this affiliation, we have strengthened the network of care available to the residents of Hampshire County and surrounding areas to continue to providing high quailty, affordable healthcare services close to home.

After years of planning and preperation, Valley Health Hampshire Memorial Hospitals opened the doors of its 65,000 square-foot replacement facility on June 4, 2011. In the ensuing years, we've made significant improvements to the hospital's footprint to improve the patient experience through increased privacy and safety along with convienence and efficiencies.

Our 30-bed long-term care facility consistently ranks among the top facilities in the state as determined by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). in 2022, CMS awarded HMH four out of five stars on its Qaulity Rating System based on results and data from health inspections, staffing (number of hours of direct care provided each day) and quality measures such as falls, pressure injuries and other risks.

Hampshire Memorial Hospital operates the Multispecialty Clinic in the Medical Building adjacent to the hospital. There is also an offsite state-of-the-art Wellness & Fitness Center.
