WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today announced that the Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC) will receive $5,000,000 to purchase advanced monitoring, ventilators, bedside imaging and procedure equipment, ICU beds and associated equipment. This funding was made available through a Congressionally Directed Spending (CDS) request by Senator Capito. In total, Senator Capito secured $241,135,000 in direct spending measures for initiatives and projects across West Virginia through the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 appropriations omnibus package.

“CAMC is the premier medical institution in the Kanawha River Valley, which is why it’s incredibly important that they have top-tier equipment and medical capabilities,” Senator Capito said. “This funding will help CAMC purchase critical infrastructure for their ICU unit that will fully complete the facility, and expand services offered to West Virginians who need it most. During my conversations with leaders at the hospital, they stressed the importance of this support, and I’m proud to deliver for our medical professionals and residents in the Charleston area.”
