AP - Madonna Rehabilitation Hospitals is planning a $57 million expansion on its Lincoln campus and expects to begin construction in the spring.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that the project is a planned three-story, 112,000-square-foot patient wing that will also add 59 new rooms to replace ones that were built in the early 1970s.

Madonna currently has 120 patient rooms, about half of which were upgraded and modernized in 2000. 

The wing will be added to the southwest of the existing 460,000-square-foot hospital in east Lincoln. Construction will develop in phases and is expected to be completed by January 2023.
