RANSON, W.Va. — West Virginia University Hospitals East’s Jefferson Memorial Hospital officials announced Friday that a signed sales agreement has been completed to acquire 50 acres of land from the Langlet family.

The property, near U.S. 340 south in Charles Town, W.Va., will be used for the future site of a comprehensive new medical campus to serve the residents of Jefferson County, according to a news release.

A strategic planning team has started to create a list of potential services on the campus, which might include a wellness center, urgent-care center, patient and community health education facility, interdisciplinary medical library and skill development/simulation laboratory. The plan includes a replacement hospital and medical office building/ambulatory care center, according to the release.

“We have been working for some time with the Langlet family to have the opportunity to partner on a beautiful, state-of-the-art medical campus,” said Christina Coad, chief administrative officer at Jefferson Memorial Hospital.

“I am pleased to announce that the sales agreement has been signed and we hope to complete the purchase by Labor Day,” she said in the release.

According to Coad, surveying has begun and a celebration ceremony is being planned for late summer.

“Our dedicated employees and their growth continue to be a priority for us, as well as always providing an exceptional, high-quality, healing environment for our community and patients,” Coad said.
