BILOXI, MS (AP) -

Patients and guests are getting a new experience when they enter Merit Health in Biloxi. The hospital celebrated its newly renovated lobby and gift shop Tuesday morning as it hosted breakfast with the Mayor.  

City leaders, business owners and locals gathered in the $1.3 million space to hear city news and developments. The lobby wasn't the only new addition to the hospital.

CEO Monte Bostwick invited those in attendance to tour his facility's brand new $1.7 million imaging system.

Bostwick says it's important to constantly improve in the medical world.

“We're always looking at the right approaches, the measured approaches for how we're going to expend capital dollars to make sure that we can deliver the kind of health care to the community that they expect from us. So, this was one of those measures for us. It was something that was needed,” said Bostwick.

The new laser guided system is one of only three in the world. The other two are in New York and London.
