Washington County Hospital will host a groundbreaking ceremony Sunday afternoon for the new addition and remodeling project. The construction timeline and process will be covered, with the blueprints and a question and answer session available. The architects and builder will be in attendance, and the public is encouraged to attend. Construction is scheduled to begin on the $6.8 million project November 1st, with completion expected early 2015, following a 15-18 month construction cycle. Final plans regarding recent changes in temporary layout of the hospital will also be covered. The ceremony is Sunday, 2-4 p.m. in the current parking lot area near the main entrance. The project includes a 7,000 square foot addition, along with extensive remodeling of the first floor, and some of the basement. The work will be done in four phases, and the hospital will remain open. The current parking will be eliminated, with the main entrance moving to the basement level during construction. New operating room suites, a new emergency room, and new entrance will be completed, and lab facilities will move downstairs.
