Barbourville nursing home will expand

It's a major renovation for an Eastern Kentucky nursing facility.

Barbourville Health and Rehabilitation Center officials broke ground this morning at the city's industrial park.

It will be the first building to go in the park and marks a major upgrade for the nursing home.

The construction is estimated to cost almost ten million dollars.

"The residents are extremely excited. They are talking about now trying to get dibs on who their roommates are going to be," said Janna Partin, Center Administrator.

Partin said the building should be ready to go by spring of 2013.
