Lincoln County First Choice Capital Project
US Senator Rand Paul, along with State Representative David Meade, was on hand Tuesday, October 18th for a groundbreaking ceremony held for a new medical facility that is coming soon to Stanford, KY. Cumberland Family Medical Center, Inc. (CFMC) has purchased property at 135 Wade Owen Road to construct a new state-of the-art medical facility.
When completed the new stone and brick facility will house a family practice clinic with ample space for traditional by-appointment family care as well as mental health care services. In addition, the new building will also include an immediate care clinic to accommodate walk-in care which will be open from 8 AM – 8 PM daily, 365 days per year.
CEO of Cumberland Family Medical Center, Inc., Dr. Eric Loy, stated that “By providing both a traditional family practice clinic for establishment of the patients’ medical home with the easy access to walk-in care with extended hours, residents of Lincoln and surrounding counties will have greater access to affordable high quality health care when and where they need it.” The approximately 15,000 sq ft clinic will provide numerous health care related job opportunities in the community and provide support for a growing, thriving Lincoln County.
“This is a great investment in our community,” stated KY Representative David Meade. “This project is going to improve health care and outcomes for those in our community.” He also expressed his gratitude to the Owens family for recognizing the need in Lincoln County and for working with CFMC to purchase the property for the new clinic.
With support coming in part from the American Rescue Plan – Health Center Construction and Capital Improvement Project, CFMC will build upon their tradition of providing affordable, accessible, and high- quality health care in areas that are most in need.
US Senator Rand Paul supported the project in his remarks in relation to bringing accessible and quality care to rural areas. Projects like a community health center are “part of what our communities need.” He also expressed his desire to return upon completion of the project to see the finished facility.
