VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –  Smith Northview Hospital had a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday to celebrate the $2.5 million expansion.

Three delivery rooms and two post partum rooms will be added.   The CEO says after the expansion is complete, 30 new positions at the hospital will be created.

"Like today we've got 11 patients in nine beds. We find everybody a bed but a lot of days we are at or above capacity for the labor and delivery unit," said Smith Northview CEO Jim Matney.

Construction begins Monday and is expected to be completed in December.
