ATHENS, Ala. (AP) - Athens officials say three health care projects are expected to garner nearly $40 million in new construction and dozens of new jobs.

The Decatur Daily (https://bit.ly/1PeBF6c ) reports Tuscaloosa-based Northport Health Services is expected to break ground in the coming months on a 10,000-square-foot rehabilitation center in the city’s downtown.

Mayor Ronnie Marks said last week he expects the center to draw an investment of $3 million and bring 20 to 25 jobs to downtown.

Earlier this month, a Tennessee-based partnership broke ground on a 57,000-square-foot, 64-bed assisted living facility that could lead to up to 30 jobs when it opens in about a year.

Athens Limestone Hospital has state approval for a $35.5 million project to build an outpatient surgical center near U.S. Route 72 and Interstate 65.
