Marshall Health welcomes second kidney specialist to its team of pediatric providers


HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Edward Nehus, M.D., has joined the pediatric care teams at Marshall Health and Hoops Family Children’s Hospital at Cabell Huntington Hospital, a member of Mountain Health Network.  He will also serve as an associate professor for the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine.

Nehus is a board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric nephrologist. He specializes in acute and chronic kidney disease and dialysis, kidney stone management, kidney biopsies and transplantation.

“Dr. Nehus is a wonderful addition to our pediatric specialty services team and faculty,” said Susan Flesher, M.D., interim chair of pediatrics at the School of Medicine. “He has impressive clinical experience in nephrology and has worked extensively in graduate medical education, including serving as the pediatric nephrology fellowship director at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. We are excited about the expertise he will add in his role as an associate program director for our pediatric residency.”

Nehus holds an M.D. from Medical University of Ohio in Toledo, Ohio, and an M.S. in clinical and translational research from the University of Cincinnati. He completed a pediatrics residency at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, and then continued his training with a pediatric nephrology fellowship at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital where he also served as faculty. 

Nehus will see patients at Marshall Pediatrics offices in the Marshall University Medical Center in Huntington, WV, and the Holzer Medical Center in Gallipolis, Ohio. For appointments or referrals, call Marshall Pediatrics at 304-691-1300.
