It also includes an enhancement to the facility's cardiac catheterization labs, a new pharmacy clean room and new robotic technology in the electrophysiology labs.

"We are excited to begin this new construction," Joseph Chirichella, Deborah president and CEO, said in the news release.

The project is financed by an $88 million low-interest loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, $10 million from Greater Commercial Lending and a fundraising campaign by the hospital.
