On Wellness in WV

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – WVU Hospitals (WVUH) has filed a request with the West Virginia Health Care Authority for a public hearing on Mon General Hospital’s Certificate of Need (CON) application to provide radiation therapy to cancer patients. Mon General filed for the CON to purchase and house a linear accelerator – the equipment used for delivering radiation therapy treatments.

“This is the first time we have ever asked for a hearing for a CON requested by Mon General, and we did not come to this decision easily,” WVUH President and CEO Bruce McClymonds said. “But after an extensive analysis of their application and the projected demand for such services, we believe that a public hearing by the Health Care Authority is warranted.”
