Lincoln, IL — Site work is beginning for Abraham Lincoln Memorial Hospital and ground will be broken for the $50 million building next Tuesday. A ceremony will be at noon at the location of the replacement building on Business I-55, south of Woodlawn Avenue, adjacent to the Logan County Fairground.
