Mission Statement

The West Virginia Network of Ethics Committees assists hospitals, nursing homes, hospices, and home health care agencies to strengthen ethics committees; provides education regarding ethical and legal issues in health care to promote ethically sound decision making; and helps patients and families to make their end-of-life wishes known.

The West Virginia Network of Ethics Committees (WVNEC) is coordinated by the Center for Health Ethics and Law of the Robert C. Byrd Health Sciences Center of West Virginia University. If you have questions about or for the Network, please send them to Linda McMillen at lmcmillen@hsc.wvu.edu.
