A $7 million loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Office of Rural Development, which was announced Monday, will be used to help a number of projects at Trigg County Hospital.

Alisa Coleman, Chief Executive Officer of Trigg County Hospital, says the loan will be used to renovate the old Cadiz United Methodist Church building, which will house rehabilitation and physical therapy as well as physicians’ office space.

The loan money will also go toward an expanded surgical wing of the hospital, which will be next to the hospital near the emergency room, said Coleman.

“We’ve been working on this for some time,” Coleman said.

Hospital officials completed the feasibility study, a requirement of the grant, in February of this year and submitted to the USDA, said Coleman, who stated that part of the study entailed how many additional surgeries would be required to “service the debt.”
