Inside the WVSHE


The mission of the West Virginia Society for Healthcare Engineering is to promote education and networking as well as leadership for our membership which will assist them in providing safe, effective, quality and accessible healthcare.


Our vision is to provide continuous quality improvement opportunities to assist our membership in improving the health and well-being of the people of West Virginia and others within our facility services areas. This is accomplished through quarterly meetings, hosted by members across West Virginia. Each meeting includes and educational presentation in subjects of interest to Facility Management. Once a year we have meeting that lasts several days and includes multiple educational subjects and classes, vendor trade show displaying current state of the art equipment and services, and family oriented activities.


We urge you to become a member so we can share our knowledge and experiences with you. We look forward learning from your experiences as well. We have a group of elected offices that administer to the business of our society. Please feel free to contact us with any questions. We look forward to meeting you at our next educational forum.
