MCDUFFIE COUNTY, GA (WRDW) - The new hospital is almost ready to open as University Hospital McDuffie holds a topping ceremony this afternoon.

A little after noon today, ceremony participants signed the final beam before it was hoisted into place.

Ground breaking on the new 68,000 sq. foot facility began last year. The hospital will have an expansive emergency department with a lighted heliport outside, and will be equipped with larger operating rooms and patient rooms.

It will be replacing the current hospital which is more than 60 years old.
