Conemaugh breaks ground on new building at Memorial hospital
Groundbreaking ceremonies Wednesday at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center represent more than just the first major construction there in 20 years, leaders say.
Hospital CEO William Caldwell called it the project “new chapter for Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center.”
The three-story, 75,500-square-foot “D” building will consolidate Memorial’s surgical support services and cardiovascular services, allowing the hospital to establish a cardiovascular institute.
“This building we are breaking ground for today is really key to the future of Conemaugh Memorial,” Caldwell said.
