Acuity Specialty Hospitals of the Ohio Valley have announced two new locations in the Tri-State Area. The Acuity Specialty Hospital of Ohio Valley at Weirton is located on the 9th floor of Weirton Medical Center. Acuity Specialty Hospital of Ohio Valley at Wheeling is located on the 6th floor of Wheeling Hospital.
Acuity Specialty Hospitals are long-term acute care hospitals providing specialty care for patients with complex medical problems requiring an extended hospital stay, according to officials. In addition to the new locations, Acuity Specialty Hospitals of the Ohio Valley have hospitals in Steubenville and Bellaire.
With the addition of Wheeling and Weirton, Acuity now has four long-term acute care hospitals serving the Ohio Valley and West Virginia area. The Weirton location also provides services to the bordering Pennsylvania health care community.
“Weirton Medical Center and Wheeling Hospital have both seen remarkable growth in recent years. It’s a natural fit for us to want to team up with them to expand our services area to communities where Acuity is needed,” said Ed Cooper, president and chief executive officer of AcuityHealthcare LP.
The hospitals are newly renovated, providing the latest in state-of-the art technology to local patients. Each patient room is private for the comfort of each patient and their family, and free valet parking is provided.
