Illinois hospital will be replaced
St. Louis Post-Dispatch, January 23, 2008
Officials of Carlinville (IL) Area Hospital are hoping to begin construction of a new, $27 million facility to replace the existing facility. Hospital CEO Ken Reid said electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling and ventilation systems at the old hospital needed to be updated if it was to remain open. The hospital was built in 1952. Hospital officials determined that extensive renovation and a needed expansion would be only slightly less expensive than building a new hospital.
