Penn Health Group has begun construction of its medical marijuana grower-processer facility in Fayette County.
The state-of-the-art, pharmaceutical grade center is being built in the Lemont Furnace community of the county. It will house 37,000 sq. ft. of medical marijuana growing and processing.
“We are committed to providing the highest quality and most effective medical marijuana products to the residents of Pennsylvania who suffer from qualifying medical conditions,” John Smolic, executive vice-president of Penn Health, said in a press statement. “Ultimately, our goal is to help improve patients’ health and overall quality of life.”
In addition, Penn Health also hosted its first job fair with its security contractor and general construction company, providing individuals from Fayette County and the surrounding communities the chance to learn more about employment opportunities in the Medical Marijuana Industry.
Construction is set for completion in early 2019.
