Portion of former hospital building to be renovated

It’s been sitting empty for several years, but it appears at least part of the original Pulaski Hospital building on Randolph Avenue is about to undergo renovations.
According to a letter to Pulaski Town Manager John Hawley from Raleigh, N.C. resident Scottie Wyatt, Wyatt plans to turn a 1960s building at the rear of the Randolph complex into 25 apartment units.
Wyatt’s letter requests the town to provide “funding support” for the project.
Tuesday, Pulaski Town Council voted to offer the same rehabilitation incentives to Wyatt as it recently offered to Greg East for renovation of an apartment building at 72 Third Street. The rehabilitation incentives, which include waiver of various fees, are part of an incentives program the town is developing, but has yet to implement.
Wyatt says the apartments will include 14 efficiencies, a one bedroom and 10 two-bedroom units. Respective rental fees will be “affordable” at $300, $325 and $400 per month, he noted.
He said plans call for 50 percent of the units to offer handicap features. There also will be laundry facilities in the building, and an activity room where tenants can socialize.
“It is my request that the Town provide as much financial assistance to this project as possible. The current construction budget is approximately $125,000,” Wyatt’s letter states.
Plans call for construction to begin in two months. If all goes well, the project is to be completed by the end of the year.
According to “The Land That is Pulaski County” published by the Pulaski County Library Board in 1981, Pulaski Hospital was chartered in the fall of 1925 through the efforts of Pulaski physicians Richard Woolling, R. F. Thornhill and D. S. Divers. Local residents took stock in the hospital and gifted money and equipment to the project and the modern facility was shortly under construction.
Over the years the hospital established a school of nursing, hosted seminars and promoted medical research. As patients from Pulaski County and the surrounding areas filled the available bed space, new wings were added until the hospital had a 130-bed capacity.
After Pulaski Community Hospital was built in the 1970s, the Randolph Avenue facility became an apartment building for the elderly, known as “Randolph House.”
