MARTIN COUNTY - Martin County broke ground on a new hospital on Wednesday.
The hospital is being paid for by a bond approved by voters back in May.
The total price tag is 24 million dollars.
It will replace the old hospital that was built back in 1949 and officials say it's just too old and outdated.
The hospital is scheduled to be finished by the Summer of 2012.
The hospital will be located near I-20 for easier access.
