DescriptionThis EDA investment supports the Healthcare Authority of Winfield with renovating the Intensive Care Unit and Emergency Department at the Northwest Medical Center in Marion County, Alabama.  This project will provide much needed safety measures and increased protection of both hospital staff and the public from infectious diseases such as COVID-19.  Once completed, the project will support job creation, attract private investment, and increase economic resiliency to an area that has been impacted by the decline in the coal industry.


The CARES Act provides EDA with $1.5 billion for economic development assistance programs to help communities prevent, prepare for, and respond to coronavirus.
