Advanced medical services will soon be available at new medical facility right here in Eastern Kentucky. Officials with the new ARH Medical Mall unveiled some of their future plans Thursday.
Officials with the new ARH Medical Mall announced a bariatrics facility, something they say is needed in our region. Bariatric Surgeons Dr. Derek Weiss and Dr. John Oldham say they're excited about the convenience it will offer to folks in Eastern Kentucky. Until now patients had to drive to Lexington for weight loss procedures.
"We're excited to come here to Hazard and be a part of offering those services here in this community. It's going to be a great partnership. The hospital's very motivated and so are we," said Dr. Derek Weiss.
The medical mall will begin opening individual units within the mall this summer.
You can see a replay of the ARH news conference tonight at 7:30 on WYMT and we will have much more on the new medical mall tonight at 11.
