County Commissioners Approve Financing Package

Chickasha, Okla. - The Grady County Commissioners reviewed Grady Memorial Hospital's plans for financing new construction. With unanimous approval, the County Commissioners have given GMH the green light for financing the new Surgery and Radiology addition voted in favor by Grady County citizens in February 2016.

CEO, Kean Spellman stated, "Thanks to the approval by the County Commissioners, Rees Architects can submit the new building plans to the State on April 29th for approval and CMS Willowbrook will begin to seek bids on this construction project. We will start site preparation as quickly as possible and our patients will see the beginning signs of construction soon. There will be times when certain parking areas are blocked off, but we will make every effort possible to reroute our patrons as needed."

The sales tax that voters approved is scheduled to begin collection on June 1st and the first funds for construction will be sent to County in early September 2016. Delays are possible if the State Health Department officials do not respond timely to plans. Updates will be added to the website as progress continues.
