Taylorville Memorial Hospital Announces Groundbreaking Ceremony


Taylorville Memorial Hospital is excited to begin their historic construction project with a groundbreaking ceremony on Friday, June 29, at 10 a.m.  The ceremony will take place in front of the south entrance of the hospital.

TMH’s construction project, called Advancing Care by Design, will include a two-story, 97,000-square-foot building that will replace most of the current hospital.  The new structure will be built on the current hospital campus and will be fully complete by early 2021.  Built in two phases to ensure continuity of all patient services during construction, it will have minimal impact on the newer portions of the hospital built in 2011.

“This is about people,” said TMH president and CEO Kim Bourne.  “While the scope, scale and size of this project is significant, it is really about fulfilling our mission to improve the health of the people and communities we serve.  This new building will further enable us to provide innovative and patient-centered healthcare for decades to come.”

The groundbreaking ceremony is open to the public.  Parking will be limited.  Visitors are asked to enter the campus from North Pawnee Street.  Overflow parking will be available at Taylorville Junior High School.

In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved to the Janice Hopper Auditorium.

BSA Life Structures of St. Louis is the architect and O’Shea Builders of Springfield is the general contractor.

Taylorville Memorial Hospital is a 25 bed critical access hospital with a mission to improve the health of the people and communities we serve.  The hospital is fully accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organization and is an affiliate of Memorial Health System.
