West Virginia Urgent Care and Walk-in Clinics

While West Virginia is rich in forests, mountains, and natural beauty, it remains one of the nation's poorest states. Worse yet, many of the states leading industries contribute to health problems among its residents, as does a lack of money.

Healthcare in West Virginia

West Virginia is home to a number of universities with excellent medical programs, such as West Virginia University, Marshall, and the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine. The state also boasts a number of health systems, including WV United, Davis, Valley Health Systems, and Southern West Virginia, among others.

West Virginia is the fourth most obese state in America, so residents suffer from problems such as heart disease, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes. The coal mining industry leads to its fair share of health problems as well. Respiratory diseases, black lung, emphysema, and various forms of cancer are sadly common among both coal miners and those who live near the mines and processing plants. Even the gorgeous landscape plays a part. There are hunting accidents, tick bites, and issues with mosquitoes.
