Forensic Unit at Warren State Hospital closing

POSTED: August 3, 2010
The Pennsylvania Department of Public Welfare confirmed on Tuesday that the Forensic Unit at Warren State Hospital will close in October.
The 25 patients in the Forensic Unit will be transferred to Torrance State Hospital.
Michael Race, press secretary for the DPW said, “This should not be seen as some sort of harbinger of any closure of this hospital itself.” He added that the closure will result in an annual reduction in costs of $2.3 million
The jobs of 41 employees will be affected by the closure.
