Much needed service in Clarksburg area. Mental health services are over crowded. United Summitt center is great however are in need of psychiatrist, inpatient, and long term care.
Please break ground!

The State changed the rules so WVUH could locate the new UHC facility to strategically infringe on the Marion County market. This caused FGH to lose sole provider status and over $2 million in federal funding. To compensate, FGH expands the mental health in-patient care wing. Now Highland will "steal" that patient base. It appears that there is a mission "by the powers to be" to sink FGH. Come on Rockefeller, Manchin, McKinley and Tomblyn. If you are serious about providing quality and effecient health care to Marion County citizens, stop trying to sink FGH and start supporting it. I don't blame Clarksburg, they had UHC "stolen" from their city.
