With the help of a federal loan, Boone Memorial Hospital has broken ground for a new hospital in Madison.

The ceremonial start came Thursday, but CEO Tommy Mullins said the ground breaking was 12 years in the making.

The State Journal reports construction was made possible through a $31.8 million loan  from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The replacement hospital will be constructed next to the existing facility in Madison. Construction will take about 24 months to complete.
