Jameson to begin $16 million expansion

Date: Tuesday, April 26, 2011, 8:25am EDT

Ground will be broken next month at the north campus of Jameson Health System for a $16 million building expansion, the hospital's biggest capital improvement project.

Jameson, which has two campuses in New Castle, plans to add a three-story emergency and surgical department building on the south side of the Jameson Hospital North Campus. Groundbreaking ceremonies are scheduled for May 6.

A glass-enclosed walkway will connect the 66,000-square-foot facility to the hospital. The new facility also will feature a rooftop helipad, 30 emergency department rooms, six operating rooms and two endoscopy suites. The projected cost is $16 million.

The 308-bed hospital had 37,633 emergency admissions in fiscal 2010, a number that has grown since the acquisition of the old St. Francis Hospital in 2002. St. Francis was converted into the south campus of Jameson Hospital.
