No firm timeline has been set for beginning that project. The board also approved a continuing line of credit with Peoples State Bank in Lawrenceville. Hospital Chief Executive Officer Don Robbins also reported on the first review of the annual business plan and on the revamped and updated hospital website which will launch on January 1st.
