Beaufort County Hospital Expanding

Over the next year and a half, the Beaufort County Hospital will undergo a $13 million dollar expansion.

The project will add five new operating rooms and over 30 recovery areas.

Hospital officials say this 37,000 square foot addition is the largest project the facility has experienced.

The expansion will be funded by money borrowed by the hospital and donations from private foundations.

Renovations are expected to be complete by Spring 2008.
