James L. Pitrolo, Jr., Chairman of the West Virginia Health Care Authority, today announced that the Authority has received a request for an exemption from Certificate of Need review, pursuant to W.Va. C.S.R. Œ 65-27, from Camden- Clark Memorial Hospital Corporation d/b/a Camden Clark Medical Center and Camden-Clark Physician Corporation, Parkersburg, Wood County, CON File #15-5-10487-X, for the development of a hospital ambulatory health care facility in Wood County.
