Pikeville Medical Center has announced plans to purchase property on the South Mayo Trail in Pikeville that includes the Landmark Inn and the building known as the Mark II.
Pikeville Medical President and CEO Walter E. May said the acquisition was necessary for future expansion as the hospital is out-pacing expectations for growth and patient increases.
“ Even with the new Medical Office Building and parking garage set to open next year, our hospital is growing so fast it can be difficult to keep up,” said May. “We’re adding physicians and specialties very quickly, and it is in the best interest of our patients to ensure we have adequate space available when we need it.”
For now, the Landmark Inn will continue to operate as a hotel and restaurant under the leadership of owners Webby and Debbie Huffman.
