Our Core Values

Marlinton Hospital and Infirmary was first established by the County Court in 1926.  It became known as Pocahontas Memorial Hospital as a tribute to the men and women who served in the military from Pocahontas County.  After nearly seventy years, the hospital was moved to Buckeye in October 1995.  PMH is now a 25 bed critical access hospital with a federally designated Rural Health Clinic.  Through our mission, standards, and principles, Pocahontas Memorial Hospital is “Where Your Health is Our Priority.”
