Spencer Hospital administrators have taken bids to begin a $5.9 million expansion project. The next phase will complete a shelled-in area above the new surgical center into 40 new patient rooms.
The project comes on the heels of a $21 million expansion over the past 16 months.
The bids came in at $5.866 million, well under the $6.6 million estimate. The project will include a family gathering area, and a more efficient location of nursing services and equipment. Construction will begin this season, and run until late October.
