CMC is currently under construction with an exciting 8 million dollar expansion/renovation project. Major enhancements of the expansion are the Family Medicine Clinic and Surgery Center.

CMC includes single-occupancy patient rooms, two labor-delivery-postpartum recovery (LDRP) suites, a state-of-the-art surgical center, a GE 64-slice CT scanner and spacious physical therapy department. What hasn’t changed is the dedication, compassion and superior care from the 170 employees of Community Medical Center.
