Capital Campaign

On April 1, 2011, Monongahela Valley Hospital broke ground for a $25 million expansion project that will build on our strengths in wound care, surgery and cancer treatment and allow the hospital to remain on the cutting edge in the delivery of medical care. This is MVH's largest renovation and expansion since the construction of the new hospital in 1976. And, it is a true community project. We are building for the community - with the community. That's why your support is so important.

The Office of Fund Development was established shortly after the ground breaking to help support the project and to manage the fundraising campaign. The goal was to raise $2.5 million from gifts from the community, including the medical staff, management, and employees of the hospital, businesses and organizations and grateful patients. MVH enlisted support from two highly respected members of our community to be Co-Chairmen of the Campaign: Richard A. Barcelona and the late Joseph U. Frye. Both men are past Hospital Board Chairmen of our Health System and offer unparalleled experience in the business community - in Monongahela Valley and in surrounding areas.

By 2013, the hospital had not only reached, but surpassed its goal of $2.5 million. A huge thank you goes out to all of the hospital's supporters, including patients and their families, physicians, board members, employees and businesses for their support. A special thank you goes out to the employees that exceeded The Hearts That Care employee fundraising campaign by 80 percent. The goal was for the employees to rais $175,000, but $317,000 was actually raised! The funds raised by the hospital's employees will be used to upgrade the heating and cooling systems in the final phase of the expansion project.

The Expansion

In all, the expansion increased the size of the Hospital by nearly 16,000 square feet. However, more important than the bricks and mortar is the impact these updates will have on patient care. The areas of concentration include:

  • Expansion of the Hospital's first floor to add four new operating suites at 600 square feet each.
  • The addition of new Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) equipment within the Sweeney-Melenyzer Pavilion which required thicker housing.
  • An expansion of the Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment and Wound Care Management program within the first floor of the Sweeney-Melenyzer Pavilion.

Architectural naming opportunities are available for gifts at all levels.
