Construction Launched on New Valley Health Urgent Care in Ranson

Construction Launched on New Valley Health Urgent Care in Ranson

East Mountain Health Physicians and Valley Health System broke ground today for a new Urgent Care center at 100 Oak Lee Drive, next to Panera Bread, in Ranson, WV. The 4,800 square foot facility is scheduled to open in the spring of 2017.

Urgent Care is a convenient alternative for the treatment of minor illnesses and injuries when a patient’s primary care provider is not available. Like other Valley Health Urgent Care centers in Martinsburg, Winchester and Front Royal, the Ranson facility will be staffed by physicians, advanced practice clinicians, and nurses, and will feature on-site lab and X-ray services, as well as online check-in. Area employers will also find Valley Health Urgent Care Center to be a trusted partner for Occupational Health services, both for workplace injury management and Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Administration and executive physicals, audiometric testing, drug screening and more.

“We look forward to serving the healthcare needs of Eastern Panhandle residents, conveniently and efficiently, from this new Urgent Care center by next spring,” said Chris Rucker, President of Valley Regional Enterprises and Vice President, Valley Health. “We know busy families are looking for convenient, high-quality after-hours care, and employers want to contain healthcare costs and help their employees get back to work quicker. We are confident patients and businesses will be well-served by this new Urgent Care center.”

Partnering with Valley Health on the Ranson Urgent Care center is East Mountain Health Physicians, a nonprofit medical corporation formed in 2014 to help serve the healthcare needs of Eastern Panhandle residents.

“This new Urgent Care location will offer convenience and value to Eastern Panhandle residents, including hundreds of our own Valley Health employees who live here,” noted Valley Health President and CEO Mark H. Merrill. “Urgent Care is part of a growing family of Valley Health services in West Virginia, which include state-of-the-art hospitals and physician practices in Berkeley Springs and Romney; a home health agency serving Jefferson, Berkeley, and several other counties; and Valley Medical Transport, with an ambulance station in Kearneysville.”
