Princeton Community Hospital



In 1970, Princeton Community Hospital opened as a 156-bed acute care general hospital with 13 physicians and 125 employees. Since then, we’ve grown into a southern West Virginia leader in medical care, with 267 beds, 160 doctors and 1,097 employees.

We recognize that as our community continues to grow, so does our responsibility to keep its citizens healthy. With that goal in mind, we’ve made continual advancements that benefit our patients every day.

We’re a regional leader in joint replacement, for example, and have invested well over $1 million in minimally invasive surgery and joint replacement technology. We’ve tripled the capacity of our Day Surgery Department. We’ve also added our Women's Center, which offers family-friendly birthing suites, secure nurseries and a private setting for women's diagnostic services.

For those reasons and so many more, Princeton Community Hospital is the center of health care in our community – reliable, dependable, always accessible and ready when you need us.
