The Medical Center at Franklin announced plans Tuesday for a $4 million expansion to enhance surgical services, according to a news release.

The 9,400-square-foot project will include the construction of two operating suites, an endoscopy suite and a six-bed recovery unit.

Construction will begin in December with completion expected in August. The current ambulance entrance for the emergency department will relocate to accommodate the expansion. Stengel-Hill Architecture of Louisville will serve as architect, while Wittenburg Construction of Louisville will serve as general contractor.

Since Commonwealth Health Corp. acquired Franklin-Simpson Memorial Hospital in April 2000, more than $17 million has been invested in The Medical Center at Franklin.
