PROVO, Utah (AP) -- Construction will begin next month on a new Provo hospital that will specialize in long-term acute care.

Groundbreaking is scheduled November second for the Utah Valley Specialty Hospital. Officials say construction is expected to take up to eleven months with the grand opening anticipated in fall 2006.

Physicians will mostly refer patients to the new hospital, which will aim at providing cheaper medical care than traditional hospitals. The facility will specialize in patients suffering from injuries or illnesses that require stays of an average of 25 days.

City officials say the hospital will NOT have an emergency room, and no surgeries will be performed there.

Officials say the hospital will employ about 120 people.
