New Forensic Facility Dedicated at The Washington Hospital

On Thursday, July 9th, 2015, Coroner Tim Warco along with the County Commissioners, Washington Hospital Directors and members of the press met for a tour of our brand-new, state of the art forensic facility.

The facility is located on the campus of the Washington Hospital and provides a spacious environment for the collection of forensic evidence during autopsy and offers an environment conducive to the instruction of medical students. For more on the facility, read our press release.
