MARTIN COUNTY - The Martin County Hospital is almost ready for patients.

Two years ago, residents of Martin County approved a $22 million bond to build a new hospital.

The older hospital had been there since the 60's and was in desperate need of repairs.

Construction for the new facility began last April and construction is already ahead of schedule.

Construction is expected to wrap up in two weeks and the hospital is expected to be open by May first for patients.
