Construction on the new 97,000-square-foot building is well underway at Taylorville Memorial Hospital. After the relocation of the sewer line, crews have been working through the summer heat and rain to dig and pour the foundation. Minor demolition to the old front entrance on the south side of the existing hospital has also begun. The Sacred Heart of Jesus statue, originally donated to the hospital by employees many years ago, has been safely removed and is being restored. It will be placed in the existing courtyard by the end of the year.
