MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — A southern West Virginia hospital has entered into a management agreement and clinical affiliation with the state’s largest health system.

The West Virginia University Health System announced the agreement last week between Princeton Community Hospital and WVU Hospitals.

Princeton Community Hospital has 203 beds serving 10 counties in southern West Virginia and southwestern Virginia. It also provides behavioral health services at a 64-bed psychiatric hospital in Bluefield.

The WVU Health System includes 12 hospitals statewide. It also provides management services to several other hospitals, including in Ohio, Maryland and Pennsylvania.
