TUPELO — North Mississippi Medical Center has started construction on its $55-million expansion that includes a new five-story west tower plus renovations to the hospital’s main unit.
NMMC officials tell the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that when work is completed in 42 months, rooms in the old tower and the new facility will be larger.
Officials say staff will have work space in each room and patients will be able to adjust window blinds, room temperature, lighting, TV and talk to a nurse with a single control box.
The first phase of construction began Jan. 3.
When the expansion is complete, a walkway will connect the new west bed tower to the existing one.
