About Valley Health
Committed to Making Our Communities Healthier
As a non-profit organization, Valley Health began its journey to bring better quality health to local communities in 1994. When Winchester Medical Center and Warren Memorial Hospital partnered to better serve their region, a vision was realized. That vision was to bring communities together with better quality health care and to meet their unique needs by providing access to the latest advancements, technology, and developments in medical services.
With hospitals and medical facilities throughout West Virginia and the Top of Virginia region, Valley Health is a community partner. Based in Winchester, Virginia, Valley Health is composed of six core hospitals:
•Hampshire Memorial Hospital
•Page Memorial Hospital
•Shenandoah Memorial Hospital
•War Memorial Hospital
•Warren Memorial Hospital
•Winchester Medical Center
Valley Health brings together 594 licensed inpatient beds, 166 long-term care beds, 5,300 employees, and a medical staff exceeding 500 professionals.
A History of Faithful Service to Our Region
When Winchester Medical Center first opened its doors in 1903, they made a commitment to br...ing superior quality healthcare services to residents throughout the region. More than a century later, Valley Health continues to uphold and expand this vision throughout West Virginia, Virginia, and even parts of Maryland.
We are proud to serve our community by improving health. We do much more than simply caring for individuals once they walk into our hospital doors. Valley Health contributes to health education, prevention, and accessible healthcare for those with limited resources.
As one system, we have one purpose: leading with innovative healthcare. Our focus always remains on patients first, rooted in our commitment to maintain integrity, excellence, courage, compassion, innovation, and collaboration.
This stance reflects what Valley Health stands for—our focus on wellness and preventative care, our collaborative efforts in the community, and our compassion for those without the financial means to gain access to quality care.
We believe we are able to make the community healthier because of Valley Health. We bring exceptional services to the region, allowing people to stay close to home for excellent medical care. More than that, we contribute to community organizations every year, boosting health departments, clinical educational programs, and much more.
Valley Health is also proud to help make the regional economy healthier, providing job opportunities as a major employer in the region. As a non-profit health system, we are always reinvesting money back into people, programs, and facilities.
