Terry M. Murphy, Services President and CEO of Bayhealth Medical Center, recently addressed the Murderkill Lions Club about the future of his organization’s two largest facilities: Milford Memorial Hospital and Kent General Hospital.  The former is scheduled to undergo a five-year, $200 million renovation tentatively expected to start in 2014.  The latter is in the midst of a $147 million expansion.  State Rep. Jack Peterman, a long-time member of the Lions Club, said the massive investment by Bayhealth will spur economic development in Kent County and upgrade the quality-of-life for residents.
