Trigg County Hospital Chief Executive Officer Alisa Coleman says the Trigg County Health and Wellness Center (above) is still on track for a spring opening, although the addition in the back of the building, made possible by a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant, won’t be complete until much later.

With a $500,000 Community Development Block Grant, Trigg County Hospital will add four additional physician pods to the new Trigg County Wellness and Rehabilitation Center.

That is what Trigg County Hospital Chief Executive Officer Alisa Coleman said last week. With that CDBG, she said, a 5,984-square-foot addition will be constructed onto the back of the former Cadiz United Methodist Church building.

The Health and Wellness Center, which Coleman says is still on track for an opening next month, was still lacking in some physician space, so they applied for the grant, and now preliminary planning has been done for this addition, which will take a year to complete.

“We applied for that back in September, we worked through PADD (Pennyrile Area Development District) and the city and county government for access to these funds,” Coleman said. “It was to address the access to healthcare.”
