Mon Health System files Certificate of Need for small format hospital in Harrison County

HARRISON COUNTY, W.Va. – Mon Health System announced today that it has filed a formal application for a Certificate of Need to build and operate a new state-of-the-art small format hospital in Bridgeport to serve the greater Harrison County community. The project cost is estimated to be $22.5 million.

Small format hospitals are accredited by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to offer hospital-based services that include inpatient and outpatient medical beds, diagnostic imaging and lab services, and full-service emergency services – just on a smaller scale than larger hospitals.

Mon Health System selected property at Charles Pointe to locate their newest hospital. Charles Pointe is an award-winning $1.5 billion Master Planned Community located on 1,700 acres in the city of Bridgeport, WV.

“We believe that this is the perfect solution for Harrison County and surrounding communities,” said David Goldberg, President and CEO of Mon Health System. “Because many Harrison County communities already know and trust Mon Health for their medical care, we look forward to opening this new hospital to keep healthcare local to our patients.”

In December 2021, Mon Health System opened Mon Health Marion Neighborhood Hospital, another small format hospital in White Hall, WV. The hospital was the first of its kind in the state and embraces the importance of timely scalable rural healthcare investments needed in West Virginia.

“Our commitment to expand access and improve the choice that people have in where they receive their healthcare is our priority,” said Ed Boyle, chairman of the Mon Health System Board of Directors. “Accessibility close to home is a key component of quality care, and Mon Health and its locally based board of community volunteers are pleased to bring this innovation to our state.”

Mon Health has expanded its behavioral health services in the Harrison County community with the recently announced affiliation with Highland-Clarksburg Hospital in Clarksburg, WV. According to Goldberg, expanded accessibility of healthcare services and choices in North Central West Virginia will help enhance the overall health of the communities they serve, one patient at time.

“We are pleased to welcome Mon Health System to Harrison County,” said Jamie Corton, chairman of Genesis Partners, LLC, the developers of Charles Pointe. “Mon Health is a respected leader in healthcare here in West Virginia. Their plan to build a community hospital

within walking distance to the many amenities located here, including the new $50 million Bridge Sports Complex in Bridgeport, fits well with the mission of Charles Pointe.”
