Supporting WVU Medicine Uniontown Hospital

WVU Medicine Uniontown Hospital appreciates all charitable gifts and contributions from grateful patients and families, employees, foundations and local businesses and utilizes them to help maintain an optimal level of care to those who need our care the most.  

We are the healthcare leader in Fayette County and surrounding areas, providing emergency and critical care for area residents for more than a century.  

Each and every gift donated to the hospital, regardless of size, is vital to our continued efforts to make a difference in our community - every patient, every time. With these gifts, we are able to continue to offer dozens of specialty services and make technological advancements when and where we can to provide the best care to our family, friends and neighbors. 

In the ever-changing healthcare climate, your gifts are more important now than ever before as public funding continues to become more and more unstable. 

We thank you for your charitable consideration and look forward to continuing to serve Fayette County residents.

Help bring Labor and Delivery back to WVU Medicine Uniontown Hospital.


Fayette County residents welcome about 1,250 babies each year, yet they are forced to travel elsewhere for delivery since the hospital’s birthing unit closed in 2018. Friends, that is all changing!

A $5 million capital investment is happening and will enable Uniontown Hospital to revive its former Labor and Delivery Unit to better serve the surrounding areas. While the basic structure for the unit already exists, the hospital must upgrade the facilities and equipment to meet the latest requirements for obstetrical healthcare services. This community fundraising effort will provide $3 million for infrastructure and renovation, plus $2 million for furniture, fixtures, and equipment.

This project will not only expand healthcare services for a rural area in need; it will also create jobs to help strengthen the local economy. WVU Medicine expects to hire at least 40 new employees to staff the Labor and Delivery Unit at Uniontown Hospital, including obstetricians, obstetrical physician assistants, pediatricians, nurses, and ancillary staff to support unit operations.

Your support of the Labor and Delivery campaign will directly impact future generations on lives on day one of operation. Please consider supporting this exciting and important undertaking for Uniontown and Fayette County, but most importantly for the mothers and kids who will be born here.

Our Donor Profiles

The Main Lobby and gateway to medical services, constructed in 2009 as part of a large renovation and expansion project at the hospital, bears the name of Carolyn E. and the late W. Gerald Blaney, two regional philanthropists.

The Blaneys made personal donations and provided numerous gifts over the years benefiting the education of hospital staff and significantly enhancing health care service delivery in Fayette County.  

The Blaney family has long been ardent believers in the power of philanthropy and remains committed to the donation of time and service. Carolyn and her daughter Ruth Carter serve as active members of the Hospital’s Volunteer Auxiliary. Carolyn also serves as president of the Eberly Foundation and served as a trustee for the Eberly Family Charitable Trust. 

Elouise and her late husband Robert E. Eberly are lauded as the single largest benefactors to Uniontown Hospital.

Together with the Eberly Family Foundation, the Eberly Family Charitable Trust and personal donations, they have donated more than $5 million in support of the growth and development of Uniontown Hospital and its service line partners.

As a result of Elouise’s support of the hospital’s renovation and expansion project in 2009, the Elouise R. and Robert E. Eberly Community Room was established to provide a meeting space for staff and community education. Their generous support and dedicated and visionary leadership have provided Fayette County with comprehensive, state-of-the-art healthcare services.

Although a couple of great influences, the Eberlys always showed genuine humility and deep concern for the welfare of others. In fact, Elouise volunteered for and served as a Board Member for the Auxiliary for more than 50 years and served as an Emeritus Trustee for the Hospital’s Board of Directors.

Local businessman, entrepreneur, philanthropist and former Fayette County commissioner, Joseph A. Hardy, III dedicated service and financial support to improving the quality of life for area residents.

Joe is the founder and CEO of 84 Lumber, the largest privately owned building materials supplier to professional contractors in the nation, and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, one of North America’s premier resort destinations.

Joe made the single largest donation to the Campaign for a Healthy Future in support of Uniontown Hospital’s major expansion projects.  

Mr. Hardy has received numerous awards from the local community for his multi-million dollar donations in support of street and building improvements as well as the construction of green space in downtown Uniontown.

At Mr. Hardy’s request, his $1 million contribution was used to expand and renovate the hospital’s Emergency Department in honor of his personal friend and family physician Cataldo F. Corrado, MD.  Dr. Corrado has practiced emergency medicine for 49 years at Uniontown Hospital.
