MOUNT VERNON, IL (KFVS) - Hospital and local officials broke ground Tuesday in a ceremony announcing the addition of a $1.8 million child development center to be located on the campus of the new Good Samaritan Regional Health Center in Mt. Vernon.
The Good Samaritan Child Development Center will be located immediately south of the new hospital under construction off of Veterans Memorial Drive. The 10,000-square-foot Good Samaritan Child Development Center is being constructed by Shores Builders and is expected to be complete by Patient Move Day to the new hospital on Jan. 20, 2013.
The new child development center will include eight classrooms, a gymnasium, a playground and something new – a safe room to protect children from extreme storms.
