WVU Medicine Children’s now offering telemedicine appointments at St. Joseph’s Hospital

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Specialists from WVU Medicine Children’s are now providing appointments for families at WVU Medicine St. Joseph’s Hospital in Buckhannon.

“Expert, specialized care should be available to all children, regardless of where they live,” Amy L. Bush, B.S.N., M.B.A., R.N., C.N.O.R., chief operating officer for WVU Medicine Children’s, said. “That’s why we’re thrilled to be able to bring our experts to families in the Upshur County area. Now, parents can access the care they need for their children closer to home.”

The services are being provided through telemedicine and will be staffed by WVU Medicine Children’s physicians, who will see patients in clinic at 21 Auction Lane Building E. Advanced practice provider Jessica Mongold, F.N.P.-C., will partner with WVU Medicine Children’s pediatric subspecialists to bring their expertise to Buckhannon.

Services include Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Genetics, Neurology, and Pulmonology.
Patients must be referred by their primary care providers. To refer a patient, referring providers can call 855-WVU-CARE, or click here for more information.

WVU Medicine Children’s is the state’s largest group of primary care and specialty care physicians and surgeons dedicated to the care of children and adolescents. It is the only hospital in West Virginia with a pediatric cardiac surgery program and the only epilepsy monitoring unit in the state equipped to serve children.

Currently a hospital-within-a-hospital on the sixth floor of WVU Medicine J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital, WVU Medicine Children’s is changing and growing. Later this year, work will be completed on a new $215-million, 150-bed WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital. To learn more about WVU Medicine Children’s, visit Childrens.WVUMedicine.org.
