Industrial Parks by themselves do not guarantee that a business will prosper. There needs to be community resources in place as well, and Grant County has those resources.
The Grant Memorial Hospital is the region's only general and surgical hospital. The 61-bed facility has a 24-hour physician-staffed emergency room, an obstetrics wing, intensive care unit and a full range of medical and surgical services along with the latest diagnostic equipment and procedures. As a community hospital, there is an extensive outreach program to promote preventative health care strategies.
The Grant County school system is a model of excellence and achievement, and the citizens of Grant County willingly take on supplemental educational levies to support and provide for programs and classes not often found in a rural school system. The county provides well for its students and teachers and one measure of success is the number of awards given to the Grant County schools.
Adjacent to the Petersburg Schools campus is the South Branch Vocational-Technical Center, which provides training for students and adults from the neighboring counties of Hardy and Pendleton, as well as those of Grant County. Students here can be trained job-specific skills appropriate to any business locating in the county. The Center actively cooperates with local business in curricula design.
