CAMC acquires Greenbrier Valley Medical Center

by

CAMC Health Network and Morgantown-based Mon Health Organization announced their intention to form Vandalia Health, a statewide health care system, in March 2022.

Dave Ramsey, Vandalia Health’s president and CEO, was at GVMC on Saturday, where personnel began replacing signs outside and inside the hospital.

“There will be a huge difference in how the hospital is managed and cared for as an asset of the community,” he said. “It is only focused on the well-being of the community, the services in the community and the health care that we can provide.”

Ramsey previously said each facility will maintain its “unique historical identity” under the Vandalia Health name. At GVMC, he said it’s critical to expand services and provide more access to patients.

“By adding more doctors, more equipment, more staff at the hospital, more people can stay close to home when they’re ill and need our services,” Ramsey said.

As of Sunday, CAMC is made up of five hospitals including CAMC General Hospital, CAMC Greenbrier Valley Medical Center, CAMC Memorial Hospital, CAMC Teays Valley Hospital and CAMC Women and Children’s Hospital, the CAMC Institute for Academic Medicine and the CAMC Foundation.

Ramsey said these acquisitions are only the beginning for CAMC.

According to CAMC, all necessary regulatory and government approvals and the purchasing agreement with Community Health Systems have been finalized.

CAMC administrators were at GVMC throughout the holiday weekend during its transition to CAMC.
