The hospital provides a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services at its 200-bed acute care facility – the largest in far southwest Virginia – and at its physician practices. Known as a leader in offering the latest medical technology, Clinch Valley Health was among the first healthcare facilities in the world to offer image-guided radiation therapy (IG-IMRT) as part of its Cancer Treatment Center, and was the first in its region to use bar-code technology to enhance patient safety. It has been repeatedly ranked as one of the nation's top hospitals for treatment of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
