Washington County Forensic Facility

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. Our facility provides a modern, spacious environment for the collection of forensic evidence during autopsy and offers an environment conducive to the instruction of medical students. We're lucky to have such a modern facility, and are thankful for the cooperation between the county Board of Commissioners and the board of directors of Washington Hospital. For more on the facility, read our press release.

We've come a long way! Our new facility, above, as it looked prior to construction. The room was formerly the print shop for Washington Hospital. With the air handler relocated, pre-construction planning takes place within the room destined to become the new forensic center.
