Penn Health Group Groundbreaking Ceremony Celebrates Medical Marijuana Facility in Fayette County, Pennsylvania

 

The Penn Health Group groundbreaking ceremony celebrates the construction of its medical marijuana grower-processer facility in Lemont Furnace, Fayette County, PA. The Company was awarded a medical marijuana growing license from the State of Pennsylvania in July 2018 with an application that received the highest score overall for both the first and second rounds.

“We are committed to providing the highest quality and most effective medical marijuana products to the residents of Pennsylvania who suffer from qualifying medical conditions,” said John Smolic, Executive Vice President, Penn Health Group. “Ultimately, our goal is to help improve patients’ health and overall quality of life.”

Penn Health Group is building a state-of-the-art GMP, pharmaceutical grade facility in the Lemont Furnace community of Fayette County, PA. Expected to be completed in early 2019, the facility will house 37,000 square feet of medical marijuana growing and processing.

“We will use rain water to grow the plants, and the facility will be equipped with its own co-gen facility that will allow us to utilize the natural gas resources available to us here in Western Pennsylvania.”

Penn Health Group has invested in the highest quality processes and operations to ensure the medical marijuana patients in Pennsylvania receive only the highest quality pharmaceutical grade products. The Penn Health Medical Advisory Board includes top doctors, like Dr. Frank Costa, medical director and chief of surgery of the Urology Institute of Pittsburgh, as well as nationally-renowned Dr. Sue Sisley, a preeminent researcher on the potential medicinal uses of marijuana.

“When I joined the Senate, myself and several colleagues worked hard for years to pass legislation to legalize medical marijuana in Pennsylvania so that patients can experience the medical benefits and residents the community can experience the positive economic impact,” said Hon. Patrick Stefano, Pennsylvania State Senator. “I’m excited about the economic opportunities and medical benefits that the Penn Health Group facility brings to the Fayette County community.”

Honored guests at the groundbreaking ceremony included Ms. Johnna Pro, Regional Director for the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development; Mr. Jim Frank, District Director, Office of Congressman Bill Shuster; Hon. Patrick Stefano, Pennsylvania State Senator; Mr. Vincent Vicites, Chairman, Fayette County Board of Commissioners; Angela Zimmerlink, Secretary, Fayette County Board of Commissioners; and Dave Lohr, Vice-Chair, Fayette County Board of Commissioners; Hon. Ryan Warner, Pennsylvania House Representative; and Hon. Robert Doria, District Commander, American Legion.

Penn Health Group also hosted its first job fair with its security contractor and general construction company, providing individuals from Fayette County and the surrounding communities the chance to learn more about employment opportunities in the Medical Marijuana Industry. Open positions are available in the areas of cultivation, lab and processing, packaging, and sales. Penn Health Group will offer a living wage for all entry level positions, robust benefits packages and employee training programs.

Hi everyone! Nice to e-meet you! Here are a few things you should know about me. I am a conscientious, open-minded, adaptable to new experiences, and ambitious Business Development Manager with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics - Banking, Finance, and Accountancy. Through my studies, I've also obtained many naturopathic and nutrition degrees as well. Part-time jobs have added marketing, network marketing, event management, and store management skills to my experience throughout my career. Throughout my career, I have also been a Hotel Manager and owned a Bar/Restaurant & Internet Cafe. My online marketing and social media interactivity experience was gained when I and my husband started a business with an online/organic webshop & healthy lifestyle consultancy. I've improved my English at Cambridge Academy of English - 2003, in Cambridge. I live a conscious lifestyle, and try to protect the ecosystem. Animal lover and capable of helping others without judgment or negative reactions, this is thanked my knowledge in holistic therapies and the naturopathy courses I've followed. I cannot leave for my spiritual growth and the continuous development in alternative and holistic therapies, so I'm learning at Kyron School of New Consciousness, receiving a Bio Energo-therapist diploma. Thanks to all my experiences I've decided to venture into publishing and writing, while also continuing to learn many new things daily. I hope you enjoy reading my hand-picked news and check back for my weekly articles.
