Historic hospital, shuttered for decades, getting renovated

MOUND BAYOU — After 30 years of being boarded up, renovation has begun on the Taborian Hospital in Mound Bayou, one of Mississippi’s oldest hospitals.

Contractors have 210 days to complete the work.

The Bolivar Commercial reports that the work is funded with a $2.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The facility will reopen as the Taborian Urgent Care Center.

Founded in 1942 by the fraternal order Knights and Daughters of Tabor, the venture is also supported by a partnership between the order and the city.

Upon opening, TUCC will offer residents extended hours, including evenings and weekends, as well as other services.

It will also provide walk-in access for acute illness and injuries, as well as physical and occupational therapy.
