The Clark Regional Foundation for the Promotion of Health will host a public meeting Monday, Oct. 8, at 6:30 p.m. at Calvary Christian Church, 15 Redwing Drive.
The meeting will detail plans for the old Clark Regional Medical Center building.
The former hospital is owned by the Clark Regional Foundation, which was created with funds generated by the sale of the building to LifePoint Hospitals in 2010.
Foundation president and CEO Jen Algire will speak at the meeting and answer questions from the public.
The new Clark Regional Medical Center opened in March on Lexington Road, 95 years after the original hospital opened on Wainscott Avenue.
The current facility is licensed for 100 beds and offers services not available at the old hospital. Construction took approximately 18 months.
The former hospital opened in 1967, six years after the hospital board of directors voted to build the facility and purchase 38 acres along West Lexington Ave. The hospital added a significant expansion in 1982 including 19 additional beds and consolidated all patient beds on one floor.
In April 2010, LifePoint purchased Clark Regional Medical Center, and broke ground for the new facility on
U.S. 60 five months later. The new hospital opened March 31, and the former facility has been vacant since.
The Clark Regional Foundation was created to promote better health in Clark County and hopes to provide grant money for health education programs in the traditional Clark Regional Medical Center service area.
