Ellwood City Hospital Receives $500,000 State Grant

Funding To Create A System Of Electronic Medical Records

Ellwood City Hospital will receive a $500,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare, according to Senator Elder Vogel (R-47).

The grant will enable Ellwood City Hospital to upgrade and renovate their information technology system. This network upgrade will create a faster and more efficient sharing of medical information within Ellwood City Hospital and between medical providers throughout the country.

“This is great news for the Ellwood City community, the hospital and their patients. This funding will allow medical professionals to quickly access and share vital medical information,” Vogel said. “By quickly receiving up-to-date information, the healthcare practitioners at Ellwood City Hospital will be able to save lives and money by improving patient care.”

“We appreciate the hard work of Senator Vogel in obtaining this grant,” said Raymond Beck, CEO of Ellwood City Hospital. “He understands the unique needs of smaller medical facilities in his district, and is working to ensure smaller hospitals receive strategic investments that will continue to enable them to sustain a high level of patient care every bit as good as larger institutions with far greater resources.”
