Sunlink Health Systems, Inc. Announces $2 Million Expansion, Capital and Operating Improvements at Trace Regional Hospital

announced today that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Trace Regional Hospital, has implemented its Trace Forward Capital Plan totaling approximately $2 million to expand, upgrade and improve its physical plant, patient care, ancillary services and support areas.

The Trace Forward Capital Plan includes an 8-bed expansion of its Pathways Care Program, a geriatric behavioral health service, which will bring Pathways to 26 total beds.

"The expansion and upgrade of our Pathways Care Program will allow us to meet the growing demand for quality senior behavioral services as well as acute care hospital services in our northeast Mississippi service area."

We wish to thank our elected Mississippi and Federal officials and staff for making these investments possible under various provisions of the CARES Act, which are funding a portion of the Trace Forward Capital Plan, and for prioritizing quality and access to care for the citizens of the Houston and Chickasaw County area during this uncertain and potentially disastrous period of the COVID-19 pandemic."
