Greenbrier Resort to open sports medical facility

Mar 17, 2014 9:02 PM

The owners of the Greenbrier Resort in Charleston, West Virginia, walked away with an armful of potential cash after making a deal with the state’s lawmakers that provides a tax break for the promise of a major sports medical facility.

The Greenbrier said the $86 million facility will provide access to world-renowned doctors who cater to professional athletes. The project could generate as much as $400 million in tourism.

Over the next 10 years, Greenbrier will receive about 25 million in reduced taxes.

Greenbrier said the sports medical facility should open in 15 months.
