This grant provides funding to Franklin County to support the re-opening of the county-owned Franklin Medical Center, which closed in 2015. Duke LifePoint (DLP) Maria Parham is leasing the building from the County and will establish emergency services and inpatient geriatric and adult behavioral health care at the site. A Community Health Needs Assessment identified an urgent need for local access to these services. The project will result in the investment of $17.5M in building improvements and $4.5M in new equipment. The new DLP Maria Parham Medical Facility will create 63 new jobs. Golden LEAF funds will be used for renovations and improvements to the building.
