CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas Gov. Mike Beebe is scheduled to take part in the groundbreaking ceremony for a hospital in Conway. Beebe is to join Monday's ceremony for Baptist Health Medical Center just off Interstate 40 in south Conway with Conway's mayor and other officials. Baptist Health of Little Rock announced plans for the 200,000 square-foot hospital last November and the hospital is expected to open in 2016. 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.
