Cookeville – On Dec. 1 Cookeville Regional Medical Center (CRMC) officially broke ground on an expansion project set to bring 40 additional patient beds to the hospital.

The $17 million project, known as 4 West and 5 West expansion is set for completion in 2025. Once completed the medical center will go from 269 to 309 beds.

“The local economic impact is projected to be $8-10 million,” according to the Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce (Chamber). “With 12,331 inpatients last year and a growing demand for beds, this expansion marks a significant milestone for CRMC and the community, reinforcing its role as a vital health care provider. We can’t wait to celebrate their ribbon-cutting ceremony in 2025!”
