West wing totaling 54,000 square feet will be constructed
By Claire Giesige
COLDWATER - To "build on a promise," Mercer Health is embarking on a $24 million hospital expansion project.
The project will add a 54,000-square-foot, three-floor west wing to the existing Coldwater hospital. The expansion represents more than 40 percent of the size of the existing hospital, which is 119,000 square feet. The first floor will be designated for an outpatient center, the second for a surgery suite and the third for private inpatient rooms. [More]
