Construction should start by mid-July on a $40 million-plus expansion project at Longview Regional Medical Center, officials said Thursday.

Longview Regional officials and those with the hospital’s parent company, Franklin, Tenn.-based Community Health Systems, on Thursday kicked off the biggest expansion project in the 30-plus years of the hospital’s existence.

While not releasing the total expected investment the company anticipates, Michael Portacci, president of Community Health Systems Division II Operations and its 29 hospitals, said the Longview expansion would top the cost of another company hospital project in Arkansas that was in the $35 million to $40 million range. Without narrowing the range much, he said the Longview project would be less than $100 million.
