Ground broken on three-story building in Winchester
WINCHESTER, Ky. (May 29, 2014) — Clark Regional Medical Center (CRMC) held a ground breaking ceremony on Wednesday to mark the beginning of a 45,000-s.f. expansion project of the Clark Clinic. The new three-story building will provide services such as cardio-pulmonary rehabilitation, a sleep clinic, wound care, center for rehabilitation, diabetes clinic, Coumadin clinic, congestive heart failure clinic and additional physician suites.
The new space will include a “Community Health Center” with services such as cardiac rehabilitation and pulmonary rehabilitation for those who need assistance after open heart surgery, or help with their chronic lung disease, a congestive heart failure clinic for patients to learn how to best care for themselves and their diagnosis.
There will also be an Education Center, where routine classes will be held for diabetes management and healthy eating and support groups can come together to learn from each other. Additionally there will be a new state of the art sleep center for patients who need a sleep study to determine what treatment options are needed as well as plans for a wound care center for those who have chronic wounds and prefer to have care close to home.
The project, which will be built by Wehr Constructors Inc. of Louisville, will take approximately 10-14 months to complete.
