The mission of the John Manchin Sr. Health Care Center is to offer intermediate nursing, inpatient and outpatient clinical services* at the most affordable cost and in the most efficient and accessible manner, targeting indigent residents who are unable to obtain these services in the community. *Outpatient Clinic is currently only open for current patients for telemedicine on Mondays and Thursdays.
Since its inception as Miners Hospital Number 3 in 1899, the residents of Marion County and the surrounding area have looked to this facility for continuing health care. In 1980, the original structure was replaced with a new building on the same site. Renamed Marion Health Care Hospital in 1983 and renamed again in 2003 to John Manchin Sr. Health Care Center, this public institution continues to provide quality medical care to its patrons.
