The Joe and Peg Greenlee Rural Health Clinic stands as a testament to the enduring commitment of Pocahontas Memorial Hospital to serve the healthcare needs of our rural community.

The first hospital for Pocahontas County was completed in 1906 in the town of Marlinton, known as Marlinton Hospital and Infirmary. In 1926, citizens petitioned the county court to designate the hospital as a county facility and name it a Memorial Hospital in honor of the county men and women who served in World War I. The renamed Pocahontas Memorial Hospital has been, and continues to be, dedicated to delivering compassionate and high-quality care to both the residents and visitors of our county and surrounding areas.
