Memorial internal medicine hospital to open in Hampton
(AP) The Memorial University of America is about to open its first facility in Hampton, a city with a population of more than 400,000 people.
The hospital’s new headquarters will be part of the Hampton Town Center, which is being developed to connect people to jobs and entertainment.
Memorial will be the first hospital to be built at a new headquarters.
The new hospital will open its doors in 2019.
It’s the latest hospital to close in the U.S. or relocate to another country, such as New York City, as the nation grapples with rising health care costs.
The hospital is expected to have about 1,000 beds.
The site is on the former site of a defunct tobacco manufacturing plant and is expected come with more than 2,000 units.
