New Year's Eve came on Monday, December 31, 2007, and Adair County had big not-so-sound plans plans for Westlake Regional Hospital and Courier Journal was getting a justly deserved scolding for putting down development of I-66.

Over at Westlake Regional Hospital, plans were afoot to build a grander facility, and the management released an artists conception of what the hospital would look like with a 3rd Story added. It was all scheduled for the winter of 2008-2009, but the project never happened. See photo: Westlake Regional Hospital: Exterior view after 3rd Floor added
