Pittman Calls Local Hospital Partnership a ‘Win’ for the Region

INDIANA, PA – Senator Joe Pittman (R-41) has issued the following statement regarding Armstrong County Memorial Hospital’s (ACMH) affiliation agreement with the Pennsylvania Mountains Care Network (PMCN):

“I was very pleased to learn of ACMH’s plans to explore affiliation with PMCN last fall. The now formalized partnership will solidify ACMH’s ongoing collaborative work with Indiana Regional Medical Center (IRMC) and Punxsutawney Area Hospital (PAH), as part of the PMCN. This long-term alliance is a win for local residents, a win for our region, and a win for the future of rural healthcare.  PMCN will also serve as a significant employer and economic engine for the region they serve.

“Thriving communities need a robust health care foundation in place to provide services and assistance to individuals throughout every stage of their lives. I’m proud to represent the district encompassing all three of these hospitals and I look forward to continuing to work with their teams for the benefit of our region. I am fully committed to the success of PMCN and will do all I can to support their growth during my time in office.

“Their partnership will strengthen access to health care services within our area, and greatly benefit our region now and for years to come.”
