Mountain Health Network Becomes Marshall Health Network

Marking the creation of an integrated academic health system, Mountain Health Network has been renamed Marshall Health Network. 

Officially called Marshall Health Network, Inc., the system—in cooperation with the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine—“improves access to high quality care for patients of all ages,” said Kevin W. Yingling, CEO of Marshall Health Network. 

The network consists of Cabell Huntington Hospital, St. Mary’s Medical Center, Hoops Family Children’s Hospital, Rivers Health, ambulatory facilities, medical offices, employed physician practices as well as Marshall Health physician practices and facilities.

Marshall Health Network’s creation provides training for future health care providers, advances research opportunities and promotes health and wellness in West Virginia, Kentucky and Ohio.

“This moment brings new meaning to the ‘Power of We,’” said Beth L. Hammers, the CEO of Marshall Health, “unifying our voice and amplifying our academic, clinical and research missions throughout West Virginia and beyond.”

“Under the Marshall Health Network banner, we look forward to optimizing resources and initiating a holistic shift in how we deliver healthcare, how we train future healthcare professionals and how we engage with our communities,” Hammers said. 

Marshall Health Network, Inc. is a not-for-profit academic health system. According to Cooper University Health Care, an academic health system is a group of training hospitals that have aligned and integrated with a medical school. The four hospitals within the Marshall Health Network will serve as the main locations for training medical students.

“This transformative initiative represents our unwavering commitment to advancing health care, education and research for the betterment of our community,” Marshall President Brad D. Smith said. “Together, we will build a brighter, healthier future, where innovation and compassion converge to redefine healthcare excellence.”

A joint community celebration will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 17, in the Marshall University Medical Center/Cabell Huntington Hospital Atrium at 4 p.m.
