Bryan Health breaks ground on replacement hospital

Lincoln, Neb.-based Bryan Health broke ground Sept. 28 on a replacement facility for Merrick Medical Center in Central City, Neb., according to Nebraska TV.

The new facility will be 50,000 square feet and is expected to cost $27 million. 

Bryan Health said the Merrick Medical Center, built in 1959, is becoming increasingly harder to manage as it has become outdated.

Construction of the facility is slated to end in 2022. Hospital officials said it is up to the county to decide what to do with the old hospital building.
