Plans for new hospital in West Michigan

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - There are plans for a new hospital here in West Michigan.

Pennock Health Services plans to break ground on a new 49 bed hospital and medical arts building at the corner of M-37 and M-43 in Rutland Township, near Hastings.

Representatives say the new building will give them the space needed to bring in the latest technology, in order to provide better care.

The new location is also an area where the hospital can expand in the future.

Once the new hospital is up and running, the current location on Green Street in Hastings will be used for another purpose yet to be determined.

One use that has been discussed is hospice care, but there is not a firm date on a decision at this time.

Construction will begin next year and is scheduled to be completed in 2017.
