Yesterday I had the opportunity to meet the new CEO for Meritus Health -- Joe Ross. Joe is excited to take over the reigns at our brand new Hospital and continue to offer state of art healthcare to our citizens. Former CEO Jim Hamill was always a friend of the EDC -- and we are happy to hear he plans to stay in the area.
This morning the new President of Potomac Edison (A FirstEnergy Company) Jim Fakult was the speaker at a Chamber of Commerce event. Jim just moved to our community and will be based in their Corporate Headquarters facility which the recently announced would be located in Washington County. He announced they will soon be hiring an Economic Development Manager that will be based in Hagerstown as well.
