New Baraga County Memorial Hospital Loan

Within the next 2 years, Baraga County Memorial Hospital will have a new home.

They’re getting a more than $28 million federal loan to build a new hospital in L’Anse.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is ponying up the money.

The new place will be a 71,000-square-foot facility right on US-41.

It’ll be a few miles east of the current hospital, which is on North Main Street in L’Anse.

The groundbreaking is on tap for next spring, and the new hospital should be finished by July 2011.
