Lawrence City Commission to review details of new medical facility

At its work session Tuesday, the Lawrence City Commission will hear more about Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s plans to build a 200,000-square-foot medical facility on the northwestern edge of Lawrence.

The commission received an economic incentives application from LMH last week requesting that the city issue up to $65 million in hospital revenue bonds to finance the project, which the hospital will repay using its revenue. At the work session, the commission will receive a presentation that will provide details about the facility and project timeline.
