Voter Forum


Drew Memorial Hospital on Thursday will host a second public forum to discuss a December 8 special election for a proposed quarter-cent countywide sales tax to fund a portion of a hospital expansion.

The one-hour forum will begin at noon on Thursday in the hospital conference rooms. Lunch will be served.

Drew Memorial Hospital CEO Scott Barrilleaux and hospital surgeons Drs. Michelle Pittman and John Jerius will give a presentation and answer questions about the expansion.

Attendees will see the most recent architectural plans for the planned expansion and learn about the benefits the project will offer the community and the region. The expansion and renovation includes new and expanded surgery facilities; labor, delivery and recovery areas; a nursery, outpatient clinic, and laboratory.
