Hospital to break ground for final expansion phase

FAYETTE — A groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion of Jefferson County Hospital is scheduled for Wednesday in Fayette.

Hospital CEO Jerry Kennedy tells the Natchez Democrat the expansion is the last phase of renovations that began five or six years ago.

Kennedy says the expansion will include a new emergency room, X-ray and diagnostics lab, a new dietary department, a wellness and fitness center and 20 additional beds.

Kennedy says the hospital will be getting 15-20 new staff members when the expansion is complete in November 2012.

Kennedy says the $6 million for the expansion is part of money the hospital has been saving for nearly a decade.
