Hospital Expansion Project

Citizens Memorial Hospital's expansion will create an all-new patient experience. The project includes private rooms, the latest medical technology and the same compassionate, quality care you expect from CMH.

Construction Updates

Check back regularly for updates on the construction of the hospital expansion.

Mobile kitchen trailers

The mobile kitchen units arrived in late March. Workers are assembling the temporary kitchen using five trailer units. The last day for serving meals in the current cafeteria is Saturday, May 4, 2024. The temporary kitchen is outside the Community Rooms, which will be used as the cafeteria during construction. The cafeteria will be torn down before the expansion construction begins.

dirt preparation for a parking lot

Construction continues on the north parking lot expansion and should be completed by the end of April. The new permanent parking spaces will help offset the loss of parking spaces on the south side of the hospital during construction.

North Parking Lot Construction

Construction started Feb. 12, 2024, to expand the parking lot on the north side of the hospital. The lot helps offset parking spaces on the south side of the hospital that will be unavailable during the expansion construction.

 Temporary Parking

A temporary parking lot opened in December 2023 to the south of the Carrie J. Babb Cancer Center. The lot directly across Hwy. 83 from the hospital replaces parking spaces that will be unavailable during construction. After construction is finished, this lot will return to green space.
