Hospital Fundraiser

As part of their effort to build a new facility, officials at Newton Regional Hospital are asking supporters to purchase a brick for $25.

"And we'll basically engrave a name in the memory or recognition of anyone who wants to be part of our new hospital and we'll have a commemorative wall somewhere at the new facility where these bricks will be placed," says hospital administrator Tim Thomas.

For more information on purchasing a brick call (601) 683-2031. Hospital officials say they are still awaiting approval of a final loan before starting construction. If all goes well, they say construction will begin early this fall.
