CHARLESTON — U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, announced that the Charleston Area Medical Center (CAMC) Health Education and Research Institute will receive $6,000,000, made available through a Congressionally Directed Spending (CDS) requests she made.

Specifically, this funding will be used to support construction of CAMC’s Stimulation Center, which will provide continued education for faculty, staff and other healthcare providers throughout the region. 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.

“Establishing the Stimulation Center at CAMC will be a helpful resource for healthcare providers in the region that will play a role in providing patients across West Virginia with innovative healthcare solutions,” Senator Capito said. “After hearing directly from leaders at CAMC about the importance of this project, I was pleased to advocate for and deliver this support, which will help the facility continue to grow.”

“The CAMC Center for Learning and Research is critical to training and retaining future health care providers,” David Ramsey, CAMC President and CEO, said. “We are grateful for the senator’s leadership in graduate medical education.”
