CAIRO, GA (WALB) - The Grady Health Department is closed for the next three days but will reopen Thursday in an upgraded facility.

Today was moving day 1. They've added exam rooms, offices and a waiting area for the Women, Infants and Children nutritional support program, an educational room, and much needed space for records and immunization supplies.

The renovation added more than 3,200 square feet. Nurse Manager Peggy Connell says the extra space will be appreciated.

"For the last few years we've stumbled over each other because there's not enough room in exam rooms. And we've seen a clientele increase and it's been difficult for the flow of clients in and out," said Connell.

Last year the Grady County Health Department saw 18,500 visitors and they say the numbers grow every year.

A $500,000 community development block grant was the main source of the funding. Feedback
