New wing at Morton Plant North Bay Hospital will honor Jay B. and Marsha Starkey

NEW PORT RICHEY

Hospital wing to be named for Starkeys

Morton Plant North Bay Hospital has revealed the name of the three-story patient wing now under construction: Starkey Medical Tower. Jay B. and Marsha Starkey, longtime Pasco County ranchers and conservationists, pledged $1 million toward the project, which will also include a new intensive care unit, cardiac unit, medical surgical unit and respiratory care department. Plans call for the expansion to be complete during the first quarter of 2010. Other parts of the expansion and renovation plan in progress include the construction of a three-story medical office building and renovations of the Mitchell Rehabilitation Hospital. Renovations will begin over the next few months on the hospital's emergency room, and a fitness trail will be placed along the hospital's water-retention area and will include exercise stations. The combined $49 million projects will nearly double the size of the hospital campus on Madison Street.
