Sally Nelson, CEO of HMH, addressed the Madisonville city council at the council’s meeting Nov. 14.
She informed council members that HMH would be opening up the Madisonville Medical Clinic in the vacant building on Highway 21 west of the Madisonville Volunteer Fire Department. The facility was once home to the Iron Mountain Medical Center.
Nelson says the new facility will have several features including physical therapy, occupational therapy and x-ray machines. Other plans include having a free-standing emergency room.
“Strategically, we've always thought we wanted to reach out to Madisonville,” Nelson said. “We have new signs up and an open house planned.”
Opening day is scheduled for Jan. 1, 2012.
