Medical professionals and local dignitaries participated in a groundbreaking ceremony for the new 35,000 square foot "Merit Health Madison" medical office.

The new facility will be built within walking distance from the Merit Health Madison Hospital in Canton.

The expansion will mean more jobs and additional medical experts in the area. 

"We'll be adding outpatient rehabilitation, some physical rehab, occupational medicine, speech therapy and that'll provide all kinds of jobs for therapists and other different levels of employees," says Brit Phelps, the CEO for  Merit Health Madison.
