People in Letcher County will be getting a new publication in their mail this year.
Starting this month, Pikeville Medical Center's publication is expanding its coverage to Letcher County. The weekly paper covers local events and articles related to the Pikeville Medical Center. The paper also covers Floyd and Pike Counties.
"I have people asking, why are you doing this, why does the hospital have a newspaper? Once you read the newspaper you'll find out why," said Walter E. May, President of Pikeville Medical Center.
Officials say they are not trying to step on hospital services already offered in Letcher County.
The paper is free and will be delivered to every mail box in Letcher County.
