About Us

Our History

The Huntington Internal Medicine Group in Huntington, West Virginia began as a four-physician partnership in 1969. Today, HIMG is a prosperous medical group, providing world-class medical services as the premier medical group in the state of West Virginia and surrounding states. HIMG’s 150,000 square foot medical facility is one of the most unique, creative health care facilities in the United States today!

In the early 1970s, HIMG welcomed four new physicians and the partnership's name was changed to Huntington Internal Medical Group to signify the group's concept of sub-specialization within an internal medicine group. This new concept meant that, in addition to each physician being a specialist in internal medicine, the doctor had additional sub-specialty training in the fields of cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, oncology or pulmonary disease. A new primary, specialty and sub-specialty health care delivery system was born in West Virginia.

Throughout the next several decades, HIMG experienced exponential growth. This growth, combined with a strong vision for the delivery of health care in the future, led many within HIMG to look for additional ways to enhance the ability of the organization to deliver health care. Because of that vision, the HIMG Regional Medical Center, housed in a former Wal-Mart building, opened in January 2006. The HIMG Regional Medical Center is a true "medical mall" that offers a range of health care specialties and services in one convenient location.
