Calhoun Health Service seeking bids for nursing home renovations

Calhoun Health Services is scheduled to open bids next month for several renovations to the county nursing home.

The project calls for the renovation of four existing shower/tub rooms and upgrading the lighting in 31 bedrooms.

“This will give both 60-bed wings their own whirlpool facilities,” CHS Administrator James Franklin said. “This should make these facilities more user-friendly and much more modern for our residents.”

The bids for the project are scheduled to be opened Sept. 11 with construction to begin later this fall.

In a separate bid project, Calhoun Health Services is also replacing the air conditioning system in its main building on the Calhoun City campus.
