Parsons doctor expanding facility

Updated:

From the City of Parsons:

A bulldozer arrived this week and began moving ground at 3011 Main Street in Parsons to make room for an expanded medical facility at the location. The property and facility are owned by Dr. Kolette Smith M.D., Internal Medicine.

Dr. Smith and members of her staff joined Parsons Mayor, Greg York, Economic Development Director, Carolyn Kennett, Chamber of Commerce Executive Director, Jim Zaleski and the general contractor on the project Tim Carson of Carson McDaniel Construction, LLC, for a ground breaking ceremony as a bulldozer loaded dirt into trucks in the background.

"This project is something I have wanted to do for some time. I am very appreciative to the city for placing the support of the economic development program behind this expansion," Dr. Smith said.

The doctor was the recipient of a forgivable loan through the City of Parson's Economic Development Department under the job creation criteria of the successful program.

"Our Economic Development initiative has been very successful, national statistics show that nearly 75% of new businesses fail with only 25% making it beyond the second year. Here in Parsons, we have basically reversed those numbers and we are very proud to have that high of a success rate," said Carolyn Kennett, Parsons Economic Development Director.

Carson McDaniel Construction, LLC, is owned by Tim Carson and Zach McDaniel will serve as general contractor for the project. They are a Southeast Kansas company with strong ties to the Parsons area.
