Cullman Regional Medical Center (CRMC), TRO Healthcare Design architects and Doster Construction held a groundbreaking ceremony for a hospital expansion that won't actually involve any broken ground. Having found that the original hospital plans could accommodate future vertical expansion, a fifth floor will be added to the main hospital building. This expansion will add 30 new beds to CRMC, and should increase the number of private rooms. It will also add 30 new jobs at the hospital initially, and more when the expansion is fully complete.
Construction has begun with the relocation of CRMC's antennas and removal of exterior bricks from the elevator mechanism housing on the roof. The project is expected to be completed by the fall of 2018.
