The 59,000 square foot expansion project the largest in the hospital’s 55-year history and features two floors of new patient care areas. The ground floor houses a 13-bed emergency department, a radiology suite and an expanded registration area, while the second floor features a 32-bed medical surgical floor with 20 private patient rooms.

To fund the expansion, TCMH received an $18.1 million, low-interest loan from the United States Department of Agriculture. The 59,000 square foot expansion was funded with $16.9 million, and the second phase of renovation was funded by $1.2 million in loan funds.

Final work on the second floor is expected in mid-June, with the lower floor expected to open Monday.
