ELKHART, Ind. (AP) - A northern Indiana hospital is planning a $74 million expansion that will add new high-tech operating rooms and private rooms for patients.
Elkhart General Hospital officials say work on the 150,000-square-foot expansion is expected to begin this fall and be completed by late 2015.

The expansion also will include space for 10 state-of-the-art operating rooms for inpatient and outpatient surgeries.
