GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The nearly $60 million expansion and improvement project at Memorial Hospital is on schedule and under budget.
Hospital Vice President Fred Gargiulo says the project involves adding floors six and seven to the existing patient tower. The project will result in 144 newly renovated rooms.
The new rooms being added are nearly 50 percent larger than existing patient rooms. There will also be expanded work space for doctors, nurses and other medical staff.
The construction should be finished by the first quarter of 2017.
