Boone County is finally poised to get some of the nursing and transitional beds it desperately needs.
A ruling from Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Sheridan cleared the way for Carespring Health Care Center to begin construction on Boonespring Transitional Care Center near Union. The $25-million 94,000 square-foot facility will be located on roughly nine acres of land in the 10000 block of U.S. 42 at Whispering Trail.
The official announcement was made June 16 in the Boone County Fiscal Courtroom in Burlington.
Carespring Executive Vice President John Muller said the project has been eight years in the making.
