WESTON, W.Va. (AP) - The state has awarded a $12 million contract to build a 50-bed forensics unit at the William R. Sharpe Jr. Hospital.
Work is expected to begin soon on the addition to the state-run psychiatric hospital in Weston.
Chief operations officer Greg Nichol with the Department of Health and Human Resources tells The Exponent Telegram that Marks Landau Construction of Wexford, Pa., has a year to complete the project.
Acting DHHR Secretary Rocco Fucillo says the forensics unit will help address overcrowding.
Sen. Doug Facemire says the expansion also will create construction jobs. But the Braxton County Democrat says he's still concerned about the hospital's employees, who are overworked and underpaid.
Fucillo says staffing is an issue at all medical facilities. But he says staffing has improved at the hospital.
