Every single time I go here I leave disappointed. I've had stomach problems for a couple years and go to uhc to go through multiple tests to find out HOURS later nothing is wrong with me and send me on my way. Sitting here now waiting to get stitches, I haven't been seen or spoke to in over 3 hours just sitting in my room watching tv. This place is a joke and they don't care about their patients at all.

OMG! Where do I begin? If there were another hospital in the Clarksburg/Bridgeport area, I would NEVER step foot in UHC.To name a few incidents, let me start with the emergency room. My 92 year old mother was diagnosed with the flu and sent home. Two hours later, she was back and diagnosed with congestive heart failure. I have never had a good experience in the emergency room. Too many nurses are rude and nasty; they should not be in the nursing profession.On my mother's stays, she has been given the wrong medication and foods that she was allergic to. If you are in bad shape when you enter UHC, you may not ever see the light of day again. If you can make it to Morgantown, by all means, go!

Do yourself a favor and make the drive to Ruby in Morgantown. After months of complaining of shortness of breath and chest pains, I finally went to Ruby where they referred me to a cardiologist. Most doctors at UHC were rude, but the nurses were nice. The wait time in ER is too long. They also released me while my blood pressure was in hypertensive crisis. No pulmonary tests ordered. You could die if you choose this horrible hospital. Go to Ruby, they know what they are doing.

This hospital doesn't screen their employees very well. They have a nurse in operating room (Rhonda Moore), that was convicted of First Degree Murder and spent time in prison for that charge. She is not a very nice person onoe she steps out of the hospital. Her boyfriend (ex-husband) has been in and out of prison for the last 30 years, he is currently incarserated. STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOSPITAL!!!!!!!!!!!!! All information can be checked out and is 100 % true.

The hospital is not a well design. It is to far of a walk to get to the Er. for the elderly or someone who is sick mainly in the cold weather or very hot.
Tips & Advices
Academic medical centers provide the widest range of specialty care treatments, including the latest technological advances, clinical trials, and surgical techniques. In general, an academic medical center is a better choice than a community hospital for complicated treatments or rare diseases. Pediatric intensive care, especially, is usually performed at academic medical centers.
Academic medical centers offer a broad range of specialized services, from allergists to urologists. Some of the larger medical centers have entire hospitals or clinics focused on a particular medical service, such as cancer treatment, though specialties vary among the centers. Patients whose community hospital or local doctors do not have the facilities or expertise to address complex medical conditions can be referred by their primary care physician or local specialist to a major medical center (there are more than a dozen in the United States).
Yes. In addition to their inpatient hospital services, medical centers can offer a wide variety of outpatient services, such as pain clinics, rehabilitation centers, surgery, imaging and laboratory, mental health treatment, and outpatient cancer treatment. Medical groups – doctors in private practice but affiliated with the medical center--will also have offices within the medical center.
Physicians, nurses, physician’s assistants, residents, and attending physicians makeup the clinical staff of an academic medical center.
Medical center accreditation is not required, but most centers work voluntarily toward accreditation because it represents higher standards of healthcare quality and patient safety.
