.4- TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER IS, XM TBS DAILY JOURNAL-GAZETTE AM COMMZSCLAL-STAfi, MATTOON, ILLINOIS FAGS TESTS County Farm May Become Hospital CHARLESTON, HI. The on. occupied Coles County . farm building may become private 25-bed psychiatric hospital if satisfactory lease can be arranged between the Coles County Board of Supervisors and the developers of the hospital. A lease setting forth terms for the hospital was presented at to day's meeting of the supervisors hi behalf of Charles W. Boyer Jr, Decatur, a native of Charleston, and John E. Carpenter, Atwood. Supervisors generally agreed that nee of the unoccupied build Ing as. a psychiatric center would be an excellent addition to county medical facilities. However, there were some terms of the lease which were questioned. Board Chairman Martin Park hurst then called for a meeting between the county farm committee, the hospital developers and State's Attorney Thomas M. Burke. It was expected that this group would come up with an amended lease that would be agreeable to all parties and would authorize the use of the "poor farm" building for a private hospital. Carpenter, who attended the county board meeting today, related that once a lease is approved work would get under way to completely remodel the build ing. This would include rewiring, plumbing, painting and putting in whatever extra walls or partitions necessary to provide a hospital with single beds in 25 rooms. He said a Decatur psychiatrist already has been engaged as medical director and that approximately 18 employes would be involved in operation of 'the unit. They would include registered nurses, practical nurses, persons to operate food facilities, administrative and maintenance personnel. Carpenter estimated that preliminary work would take about 45 days and that the tentative goal at present is to open the building for patients sometime In February. 12 Hears Rev.
