Catholic Medical Center, one of the largest hospitals in New Hampshire, has announced plans for a major expansion of its Manchester facilities.
CMC announced Tuesday it wants to add 220,000 square feet and increase its overall capacity from 266 to 330 beds.
CMC spokesperson Lauren Collins-Cline says the plan is driven by increasing demand and that on most days the hospital operates at or near capacity.
“The house is full as we like to say. We've been essentially at capacity most days for quite some time.”
