Garrett County hospital expansion proposed

OAKLAND — State lawmakers from far western Maryland are asking the General Assembly to approve a funding plan to expand Garrett County Memorial Hospital in Oakland.

The Cumberland Times-News reported in its Friday edition that the bills would enable the county to borrow up to $15 million for the project.

The hospital is proposing a four-story addition and 42,000 square feet of major renovations. The total cost of the project is $23.5 million.

Hospital officials say they hope to break ground in the spring.
