After nearly a decade of government and legal delays, Boonespring Transitional Care Center will break ground late this year near Union, barring any further appeals within the next month.

Officials say the economic impact is expected to be more than $30 million, including construction and the taxes the 200 people hired will pay.

Groundbreaking is set for this morning for a new center that will specialize in long-term nursing care and short-term rehabilitative care in Cold Spring.  Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear will be among the officials on hand at the new site of the Coldspring Transitional Care Center. 

A release from Carespring Health Care Management says the facility will bring more than 200 new skilled jobs to the area.  The $24-million project is set to open in the fall of 2014.
