Community leaders and Cabell Huntington Hospital staff gathered for the ribbon cutting at the Hoops Family Children's Hospital Tuesday, June 15.

The Hoops Family Children’s Hospital is a 71-bed children’s hospital within a hospital located at Cabell Huntington Hospital, a 303-bed academic medical center in Huntington, West Virginia. Cabell Huntington is affiliated with the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and cares for patients from more than 29 counties throughout West Virginia, eastern Kentucky and southern Ohio. The Hoops Family Children’s Hospital is a member of the Children’s Hospital Association and includes a 36-bed Level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, a 25-bed General Pediatrics Unit and a 10-bed Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. The Hoops Family Children’s Hospital is supported by Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine pediatricians and pediatric sub-specialists in orthopedics, allergy/immunology, neurosurgery, general surgery, neurology, infectious diseases, gastroenterology, cardiology and pediatric oncology.


The Hoops Family Children’s Hospital, a more than $15 million reconstruction project, will completely change the landscape for pediatric care at Cabell Huntington Hospital when completed in the next two years. The rooms are larger, include private bathrooms and showers and have added patient care and comfort additions. They are being built in phases so no patient care areas have to close and to not reduce the capabilities of the hospital that can accommodate up to 71 patients under the age of 18 each day.
