TIFTON, GA (WALB) - The Tifton City Council Monday night heard the presentation from Tift Regional Health System for the expansion of the Medical Center.

Health Systems CEO Chris Dorman led the presentation about the planned expansion of the Tifton hospital.

Part of the expansion calls for about 600 to 700 feet of 18th Street by the hospital to be closed.  Also, John Orr Drive will have to be reconfigured for traffic.

This was a workshop session, learning about the expansion plan. Tifton Mayor Julie Smith said the plan was well received by the council, and she expects the plan to be approved when the council votes on the project May 21.
