With U.S. loan, Boone hospital being replaced
MADISON, W.Va. — With the help of a federal loan, Boone Memorial Hospital has broken ground for a new hospital in Madison.
The ceremonial start came Thursday, after CEO Tommy Mullins said the ground breaking was 12 years in the making.
The State Journal reported that construction was made possible through a $31.8 million loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
The replacement hospital will be constructed next to the existing facility in Madison. Construction will take about 24 months to complete.
