MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — WVU Hospitals plans to build a new 10-story tower at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown to increase capacity for services and treatment of children.

According to officials, the $152 million tower will take three years to build, adding 150 beds, including a 50-bed intensive care unit for newborns and a 20-bed ICU for pediatric patients.

It will also contain 40 beds for pediatric acute care, 30 beds in an obstetrics unit that could be expanded, operating rooms, facilities for endoscopy and cardiac catheterization, a laboratory, satellite pharmacy, respiratory therapy and a cafeteria.

Albert Wright, president of the West Virginia University Health System, says the demand for their services has increased.

The West Virginia Health Care Authority will have to first approve the certificate of need.
