Last week, Jason Wilson, director of the Governor's Office of Appalachia, along with ACMC President & CEO Michael Habowski, ACMC Board of Directors Chairperson Dr. Susan Stocker, Dean of Kent State University—Ashtabula, and local officials announced a grant for $100,000 to the Ashtabula County Medical Center. The grant is from the State Appalachian Development Program and will help purchase equipment for ACMC's oncology infusion program.

The grant will purchase infusion pumps, monitors and equipment for a new on-site pharmacy to be located in the oncology building at ACMC's main campus. Additionally there will be more private exam rooms and physician office space.
