CRITTENDEN COUNTY, AR (WMC) -

The news of Crittenden Regional Hospital shutting its doors caused 400 employees to lose their jobs in 2014. Now, just over two years later, construction on a new facility is set to begin.

After voters took to the polls and approved a one cent sales tax increase, Baptist Memorial Health Care agreed to build a $25 million dollar hospital. 

Construction on the new facility is scheduled to begin next week. The hospital is expected to be open by early 2018.
