The Grady County Health Department invites the public to attend the official ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house for its expanded facility on Thursday, March 12.
“The open house will be from 3 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. with the ribbon-cutting at 4:45 p.m. We will have tours and refreshments,” said Grady County Health Department County Nurse Manager Peggy Connell. Board of Health members, city and county elected officials and past employees are among those expected to attend.
The 3,200-square-foot renovation and expansion includes new exam rooms,additional space for records and immunization supplies and offices and a waiting area dedicated to WIC (Women, Infants and Children nutritional support program).
A $500,000 Community Development Block Grant was the main source of funding. “The county provided tree removal, hauling dirt and installation of the new employee parking lot,” Connell said.
Connell said the staff is looking forward to showing off the expanded quarters. “We hope the public will join us for this celebration. The renovation enhances our ability to provide services, and the whole community can take pride in that.”
