CANTON, Miss. (AP) - Health Management Associates Inc. expects to finish construction of its 67-bed, $42 million hospital in Canton this week and open the facility by the end of May.
The 25-acre tract will be the new home for the Madison River Oaks Hospital, which will replace the Madison County Medical Center located near downtown Canton.
HMA owns a network of 5 other hospitals in the Jackson area.
The Canton hospital will include emergency services, an intensive care unit, women's services center and nursery, labor and delivery suites, surgery and imaging centers, a pharmacy and a physical therapy center.
