GREENSBORO, Ga. (AP) - Officials with St. Mary's Good Samaritan Hospital say a replacement hospital under construction in Greensboro is on pace to open this year. That would be months ahead of schedule.
St. Mary's Good Samaritan Hospital President Montez Carter said in a statement that it's too early to say a specific date for the opening, but officials think it will be open by Christmas.
The Athens Banner-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/17jjC25) that St. Mary's Good Samaritan Hospital is a 25-bed critical access hospital serving the Greene County area. It will provide emergency care, inpatient care, surgical services, swing beds and outpatient services, such as diagnostic imaging, rehabilitation and a sleep disorders center.
The organization's current facility on Siloam Road is nearing retirement after more than 60 years of service.
