Effingham Hospital Digging into a New Year

EFFINGHAM, GA (WTOC) - Effingham Hospital and Care Center is celebrating the New Year by breaking ground Sunday to start their new expansion project.

Construction of the new 58,000-square-foot addition begins Jan. 3. When the project is completed, it will create a medical campus,  fit for improved patient privacy, space for technology advancement and health programs, as well as all healthcare services.

In February of last year, The Effingham Hospital Authority Contract Manager Selection Committee awarded the construction management project to R.J. Griffin and Company and Rives E. Worrell Company, based right here in Savannah.

The new hospital space is expected to open during 2012.
