CAMC Center for Learning and Research

  • Expanding our role as an Academic Medical Center.
  • Provides training and education rooms that model surgery suites, emergency suites, labor and delivery suites, and more.
  • Includes study rooms, practice rooms, and learner lounges.
  • Will serve not only CAMC employees, but all healthcare learners across the state.

Our goal is to raise $6 Million toward this project


Women and Children's Hospital

  • Each year more than 2,000 babies are born at CAMC Women and Children's Hospital, many of which are high-risk births.

  • CAMC Women and Children's Hospital is home to the region's largest and busiest Level IV (highest level) neonatal intensive care unit and level I (highest level) pediatric intensive care unit.

  • High-tech, maternal-fetal medicine and gynecologic cancer services are also offered.
  • Funds raised sustain a positive and healing presence in West Virginia and help provide the best possible start in life for our tiny patients.


Cancer Center

  • West Virginia’s leading provider of cancer services, CAMC offers the highest level of care in a supportive environment close to home.
  • Our highly trained specialists treat many types of cancer, and as such, the CAMC Foundation helps fund many programs and services related to that care.
  • CAMC Foundation successfully raised $15 million dollars to construct a new Cancer Center in 2015.
  • Additional funds are needed to fund additional programs and services.

CAMC Foundation Hospitality House

  • The CAMC Foundation Hospitality House provides free or significantly reduced cost lodging to patients and their families while receiving medical care away from their home communities. 

  • Unlike a hotel, the CAMC Foundation Hospitality House provides opportunities for those going through similar stressful situations to come together as a group where they can support one another.  

  • With the help of generous and compassionate donors, the CAMC Foundation can provide for the physical comfort and emotional needs of families during a medical crisis so that they may participate fully with the medical team as partners in care.
