Groundbreaking ceremony celebrates new $38 million hospital in Luray
Although site work on the new hospital began in September, supporters gathered Monday for the ceremonial event. The groundbreaking had been initially scheduled to take place last month, but was postponed due to the effects of “Superstorm” Sandy, which reached the Mid-Atlantic coastline three days before. Valley Health President and CEO Mark Merrill joked he felt the need to begin carrying a shovel in the back of his truck — a reference to the nonprofit organization's recent expansion trend. Valley Health launched two new healthcare facilities in Page County in the last year. The organization opened a $1 million Shenandoah Health Center in May and a $4.1 million Luray clinic last December. The new Page Memorial Hospital will adjoin Luray's Page Health Care building.
