Bid Awarded For Renovation Of Rehab Center

Mid-State Construction will conduct a $6.2 million renovation project at Overton County Health and Rehab Center (OCHRC).

OCHRC Public Information Officer Scott Stevens said the facility will now begin the next phase of the project.

“The next phase is going to be more of a strategic planning of where we are going to relocate some office and phone lines for the existing building that’s going to be demolished,” Stevens said. “We will begin breaking down the bricks and demolishing this spring.”

Stevens said the front of the original building will be demolished to build 20 private suites for short-term rehabilitation treatment.

“Each room will have its own private restroom, therapy rehab, and resident support,” Stevens said. “It’s going to about a $14,000 square foot facility.”

Stevens said construction should take between 16 and 18 months to complete.

None of the current residents will be affected by the renovation project.

The Overton County Health and Rehab Center Board met in late December to award the bid to Mid-State Construction.
