Alton Memorial Hospital will officially open its new Women’s Health and Childbirth Center today with a ribbon cutting and open house.  The renovations were completed earlier this year, adding 5-thousand square feet of new space, including updated equipment and technology, a new entrance, and new family waiting area.

Center manager Jessica Mossman says they already had a great space to work in, and now it’s even better:
