West Virginia Careers in Healthcare Management - WV

Healthcare administration jobs in West Virginia are varied and numerous. The role of a healthcare administrator can be different among hospitals and specialized medical facilities. A healthcare administrator’s duties generally require that the administrator monitor the medical and administrative staff to make sure they are doing all of their duties. Sometimes they are even involved in the hiring and firing process as well as designating patient care duties.


The only laws governing licensing of the healthcare administrator in West Virginia are those that concern long term care facilities. Such a facility may be specific to elderly individuals, or offer long term care to those with mental health issues. Health care administrators working in these environments need to obtain a license in West Virginia and can satisfy the requirements for doing so by gaining national certification.

To meet the qualifications to be licensed, one must hold a bachelor degree in healthcare administration, be over 21 and not mentally or physically impaired in such a way as to impair his or her ability to perform the job’s duties. These individuals must also have 1000 hours of experience performing administrative duties in a long term care facility and have letters of reference from supervisors of such a facility. License applicants will apply to the West Virginia Nursing Home Administrators Licensing Board.
