By November, Glenville and Gilmer County residents will have better access to WVU Medicine’s specialty care. Health System is set to open a 10,600 square foot clinic at the Waco Center near Glenville State College.

In a statement, Sandy Pettit, president of the Foundation, said that “we at the Glenville State College Foundation are pleased to welcome WVU Medicine as a new partner in providing quality healthcare to the residents of our community. It has long been our goal to expand medical services in Glenville, and this new partnership provides a pathway to that goal.”
