New medical clinic to replace aging hospital at Fort Knox

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A new medical clinic is coming to Fort Knox to replace the aging Ireland Army Hospital.

Kentucky U.S. Senator Mitch McConnell's office says the post secured $80 million to build the new facility as part of the budget in the National Defense Authorization Act.

The President is expected to sign it next week. 

It will be used to build a 102,000 square foot medical facility. Fort Knox says it has worked closely with McConnell for years to get the new facility built.
