A Destination for Exceptional Care


ACMH is an increasingly advanced community healthcare system with services like:

  • Robotic Surgery
  • Cardiovascular Interventional Services
  • Critical Care Pulmonolgy

ACMH has become synonymous with innovation in community care delivery; and as such, has evolved to become a destination point of care for many throughout the region.

340B in Action

The 340B prescription drug program is a vital lifeline for safety-net providers, supporting critical health services in our communities. The program is narrowly tailored to reach only hospitals that provide a high level of services to low-income individuals or that serve isolated rural communities. Significantly more 340B hospitals provide money-losing vital health services than non-340B hospitals, which include trauma centers, labor and delivery services, HIV-AIDS services, and immunizations.

340B by the Numbers:
  • $2.70M  Our approximate annual 340B savings
  • $5.51M  Uncompensated care provided in FY 2022
  • $10.59M  Amount spent on drugs in FY 2022
  • 24  Percent of County residents over 65 or disabled
  • 66  340B hospitals in Pennsylvania

  • 130-bed facility; 81% of our patients are Medicaid, Medicare or uninsured

  • 24/7 Emergency Room treating over 21,000 patients annually

  • Make primary care, lab and radiology services available at 6 Rural Health Clinics in underserved areas of Armstrong County
  • Offer comprehensive OB services to Medicaid and uninsured patients
  • Provide short-term in-patient psychiatric care, 79% of which is to Medicaid, Medicare and uninsured patients
