MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — A public-private health care partnership will launch a products preparedness center in West Virginia.
Gov. Jim Justice says the center will be located in Morgantown, involves a more than $50 million investment for the state and will create more than 125 jobs.
The previously announced partnership is between the West Virginia University Health System and Richmond, Virginia-based global health care logistics company Owens & Minor.
The company produces surgical products and personal protective equipment.
Justice says the COVID-19 pandemic has taught that preparedness and resiliency are incredibly important.
He says the partnership will have a positive impact for West Virginians.
