SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) -- It's a big day at Dosher Memorial Hospital. Three years in the making, hospital leaders put on their hard hats and grabbed shovels to celebrate the groundbreaking for a 11.5 million dollar renovation.
The new inpatient care facility will feature 25 state-of-the-art medical and surgical inpatient rooms. The President and CEO of Dosher, Tom Siemers says he couldn't be happier.
"It's really a state of almost euphoria in the sense that so many people have worked so long for this day to come, and we have our temporary walls going up,” Siemers said. “They are doing some demolition as we speak. It's all good. Everybody is thrilled."
He says in about 12 months, we will see what all this hard work is for.
