The largest hospital in Montana, Benefis Healthcare of Great Falls, will soon become larger as plans were announced today to build a new heart hospital. Construction is expected to start within 18 to 24 months, cost $9 million to $11 million, and take about three years to complete. Benefis operates two campuses with a total of 490 beds. The new heart facility will be located on the east campus. Benefis will partner with Charlotte, N.C.-based MedCath Corp. to design, develop and staff the new hospital. MedCath focuses on treating cardiovascular disease and owns or operates 12 hospitals in eight states. -- by Andis Robeznieks
