A groundbreaking ceremony was held Today in Center County for the expansion of a hospital for horses.
63 Thousand square feet is being added to the Abignton Equine Hospital near Stormstown.
Officials say the expansion will include more surgical suits, treatment rooms and more facilities.
They say the 2.4 million dollar additions reflects the growing number of horse owners in the county and the need for better medical care.
The project has been in the works for several years.
As of right now a similar equine surgical facility closest to Centre County is located in Somerset County.
