Lahey expansion under way

The Lahey Clinic Medical Center, North Shore, broke ground yesterday for a $50 million expansion in Peabody.

A new three-story wing will add 63,500 square feet to the current 162,000 square-foot space off Route 128. Its cancer center, orthopedic surgery and emergency departments will be enlarged and sleep disorders, spine and pain units will be added. About 25 doctors and 125 nurses, technical and clerical workers will be hired. The project is expected to be completed in spring of 2009.
