CONWAY — Ground has been broken on a $130 million hospital that's to be built in Conway.

Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe joined Conway Mayor Tab Townsell, Conway Area Chamber of Commerce and Conway Development Corp. President Brad Lacy and Baptist Health officials for Monday's groundbreaking for the Baptist Health Medical Center-Conway.

Baptist Health of Little Rock announced plans for the hospital last November. It is expected to open in 2016 with 96 beds, eight operating rooms and a trauma-center emergency room.

The project is estimated to generate about 250 construction-related jobs and the hospital is expected to have about 425 employees once it's open.
