Homerville - Clinch County Memorial Hospital is celebrating 50 years, and renovating the building would prove more expensive than building a new one.
So almost two years and 14 million dollars later, the ribbon was cut on the new Clinch Memorial Hospital.
Located in Homerville, the 25-bed, critical access facility was built with patients and doctors in mind and features state of the art equipment they hope will improve health care in the area. "We will be up with an electronic system in the next three months so we will be able to provide services that we can send over T1 lines to anywhere in the world to get assistance on and everything will be electronic," says hospital administrator Bill Forbes.
The hospital is the fourth largest employer in Homerville and they hope the new facility will generate more money for the county.
