Hospital expansion project to get underway this year
PHILADELPHIA — Construction is expected to begin by Thanksgiving on a $19-million expansion of the Neshoba County General Hospital.
Plans are for a two-story structure adjacent to the existing hospital.
Hospital Administrator Lonnie Graeber tells The Neshoba Democrat that construction will be completed in two phases, the first being a completely new hospital just south of the current structure in the vicinity of the heliport.
Graeber says the second phase is a renovation of the current 50-year-old hospital to house obstetrics and gynecology offices, labor and delivery rooms and a nursery.
The hospital is using $14.7 million from its cash reserves and $4 million in federal funds for the first phase.
Graeber says the second phase will cost about $7 million.
