Jackson Hospital adds 9,500 square feet as part of $17 million expansion. The new section includes four operating rooms, three procedure rooms, a nurse’s station and pre-surgery preparation areas and post operation recovery areas. The operating rooms will be used for general surgeries, orthopedic and other major surgeries. The procedure rooms will be used for less invasive work such as endoscopy. One of the new operating rooms is a “hybrid facility” than will be used for cardiac procedures such as catheterization. It is equipped with radiological equipment including a CT scanner.
