Tens of millions of dollars in contracts will be going to local construction firms in the

coming days.

It's for the construction of the new LaPorte Hospital.

Site preparation work for the building is nearing completion.....

Ashley Dickinson is president and CEO of the hospital.

She said 50 million dollars in construction contracts will be awarded in the next few weeks.

300 construction jobs are also anticipated.

Dickinson said the economic development occurring locally made the decision

to build the hospital downtown easier.

The 200 thousand square foot hospital at State and Tyler streets is expected to be

finished next year.
