A Glimpse into Lee County’s Hospital

Recently Ballad Health gave the first peek inside of the Lee County Hospital since it closed it's door in 2013. Ballad Health agreed in January of this year to reopen the hospital after Americore Health failed to do so by its 2018 deadline.
The new Lee County Hospital will be a critical access hospital with an emergency room and ten inpatient rooms that will have a 96 hour or less average length of stay.
Work is underway on a much needed urgent care facility that is supposed to open at the end of September. This facility will operate as a stop-gap measure until the Lee County Hospital finally re-opens.
The hospital is expected to open sometime in late 2020. The construction on the in-patient rooms will begin once federal approval is given.
