The Parkersburg News and Sentinel, March 2, 2011
It was a day of coming together Tuesday as Parkersburg. WV's two hospitals were officially joined under one entity and became a regional medical center. Community leaders, hospital officials, employees and the public came together at both Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital and St. Joseph's Hospital for the unveiling and dedication of the new Camden Clark Medical Center with its Memorial Campus and St. Joseph's Campus. Last September, officials with West Virginia United Health System announced their intent to purchase St. Joseph's while affiliating with Camden-Clark, bringing both together under one organization. The merger officially went into effect at midnight Monday.
