HOLLYWOOD, Md.—A 43,500 square foot, three-story expansion will be added near Calvert Memorial Hospital's existing main entrance. The hospital hopes to break ground in June 2017 and finish in early 2020.
Plans for the hospital were presented to the County Commissioners Tuesday at their general meeting.
