Acuity Specialty Hospitals of the Ohio Valley (ASHOV) at Weirton held a Grand Opening Celebration on Wednesday, June 10, and more than 100 people attended the event. ASHOV at Weirton is located on the 9th floor of Weirton Medical Center. “We’re proud to be here,” said Virgil Hughes, hospital CEO. “We think highly of our partners here in Weirton Medical Center. We’re proud of the partnership we’ve arranged with our other host hospitals.”

The Weirton location saves patients from traveling long distances for treatment, and allows families to remain close to their loved one during treatment. “It becomes very cumbersome at times for an individual to have to drive 100 miles,” said Joe Garuccio, ASHOV director of Provider Relations. “That is now provided here, so it really does help, it helps tremendously.”

Although the grand opening was celebrated Wednesday, Acuity has been serving patients for several months. To see media coverage of the event, visit http://www.wtov9.com/shared/news/features/top-stories/stories/wtov_acuity-specialty-hospital-celebrates-grand-opening-at-wmc-9217.shtml

Each patient room is private and spacious for the comfort of each patient and their family, in addition free valet parking.
