Health systems to get loan

January 19, 2000

Washington County Health Systems Inc., the company that owns the Washington County Hospital, will receive a $340,518 loan through the City of Hagerstown to fund renovations at the new Walnut Street Community Health Center, City Council members informally agreed Tuesday.

The loan will come from the city's Community Development Block Grant funds, which is federal money distributed by the city.

The 20-year loan with a 2 percent interest rate will be used to complete renovations of the second floor of the clinic. Under current plans, that floor will house the Washington County Health Department Outreach Service, the Health Families Program and the Child Advocacy Center.

City Administrator Bruce Zimmerman said the City Council probably will have to formally vote to approve the loan at an upcoming meeting.

The first floor of the Walnut Street clinic at 24 N. Walnut St. opened last month.

The first floor has doctors offices and space for a dentist office.
