Coplin Health Systems celebrates 45 years | News, Sports, Jobs


ELIZABETH – This is an important milestone for Coplin Health Systems as it celebrates 45 years of providing quality health care to the region’s residents.

Rob Dudley, CEO of Coplin Health Systems, said it is remarkable to reflect on the organization’s rich history and the positive impact it has had on local communities.

“Since its founding in 1978, Coplin Health Systems has made significant progress and has grown into a comprehensive health care network that includes 12 clinics serving residents in four counties across two states,” said Dudley. “While our medical facilities have improved and the number of patients served has increased, our core mission of providing quality health and wellness services and caring care has not changed. We remain committed to our mission and have expanded our services to meet the changing needs of the communities we serve throughout the years.”

The history of Coplin Health System dates back to the first half of the 20th century and a family of doctors who were loyal, passionate, and believed that people should not have to travel for health care. Dr. offered Okey W. Coplin and his son Dr. Robert Coplin home health care for community members of Wirt County.

Dr. opened. Robert Coplin the original Coplin clinic in 1948 after serving in the Army in World War II, a few years after his father died. The clinic was a general practice facility but was expanded a year later to include a seven-bed hospital.

Darrin E. Nichols, Chief Medical Officer of Coplin Health System, said that the success and longevity of Coplin Health System was due to a medical staff that was diligent in adhering to the highest standards and striving to provide quality health care.

“A team of dedicated and compassionate healthcare professionals from Coplin Health Systems has proudly worked together to improve the health and well-being of our patients for the past 45 years,” Nichols said. “Our vision is to improve healthcare every day, so we’re not just here when people get sick; we are here to keep our patients and our community well.”

Coplin Health Systems provides quality care to patients of all ages. Health care services offered include primary care, same day care (short-term/urgent medical needs), women’s health, occupational health, behavioral health services, chronic disease management, and on-site pharmacies.

Recently, Coplin Health Systems announced the expansion of its Wirt County Family Care location. When completed in Spring 2024, the approximately $2 million project will add just over 4,000 square feet to the health center’s current footprint. This will include: new medical treatment rooms, the addition of dental operators, a larger physical therapy space, a new behavioral health space, offices for staff, a larger conference room, and a large storage area.
