The Charleston Area Medical Center, or CAMC, is a combination of three hospitals around the city that were formed together by a merger of previously independent facilities. Together they make up the state’s largest hospital complex and serve as the area’s premier medical care institution. Between the three facilities, there are a combined total of 838 staffed beds that receive the upmost care for every patient. The largest of the three branches is the CAMC Memorial Hospital, located in the Kanawha City neighborhood of Charleston. It primarily hosts cardiac, oncology, and internal medicine cases. The second largest of the hospitals is the CAMC General Hospital, which is located downtown. This hospital tends to focus on neurology, orthopedics, trauma, and rehabilitation care. The third and final Charleston area hospital is Women and Children's Hospital, which is located on the banks of the Elk River. CAMC is also affiliated with Teays Valley Hospital, located in Putnam County to the west of Charleston.
Besides providing some of the best medical care around, the Charleston Area Medical Center is also a teaching institution with numerous educational affiliations, the most significant of which is a relationship arrangement with West Virginia University. The CAMC hospitals operate as training sites for the WVU medical students as WVU faculty supervise CAMC residents and fellows. The complex of hospitals have done so well in recent years that during 2005 and 2006, the facility won awards for being one of the top 50 hospitals for cardiology and cardiac surgery on the US News List of "Best Hospitals." No matter how you look at it, the family at CAMC is committed to taking tremendous care of you or your loved one, and even is dedicated to creating some of the best doctors for tomorrows world.
