BMH starts expansion project

BRATTLEBORO (AP) - Construction is starting on an expansion project at a Vermont hospital.

Brattleboro Memorial Hospital is upgrading its emergency room and is building a new MRI unit. Construction starts Monday.

The state approved the project earlier this year, estimated at over $7 million.

The emergency department was last renovated in 1982. At that time it was constructed to serve about 6,000 patients annually.

But over the past 30 years, that number has more than doubled, with over 13,000 patient visits last year.
