Ballad Health is enhancing healthcare in Southwest Virginia with a more than $9 million investment in Lonesome Pine Hospital
In December 2021, Ballad Health announced its plans to invest $9.3 million in Lonesome Pine Hospital renovations and expansions on the hospital campus.
The investment is part of Ballad Health's vision to facilitate long-term, sustainable healthcare at Lonesome Pine and includes the purchase of the neighboring Armory building from the town of Big Stone Gap. About $1.5 million of the $9.3 million investment will fund renovations in the Lonesome Pine emergency department.
