Sneak Peak At Hospital's Multi-Million Dollar Expansion

Providing better health care in Jacksonville is the hope of Trinity Mother Frances Hospital.


Thursday the hospital gave a sneak peak at the its new expansion project. The $3.5 million addition includes 15 new private patient rooms and added space for food service, physical therapy and laboratory services. Hospital officials said the benefit to Cherokee County is advanced health care, close to home.

"We just have more patients everyday that we are having to take care of," said Dr. Billy Dan Carson, "We want to take care of people here in Jacksonville. Mother Frances in Tyler is our mother hospital and we're able to send patients there which we like to, but we'd like to take care of people here."

The hospital says an intensive care unit will soon be added to the new area.
