Completing the Hospital Expansion

concept3In a special mail-in election the service area voters approved issuing $14.7 million in bonds to complete the next phase of the expansion. The bid for this final phase was awarded to Jay Brandt Construction, and work began in June of 2008. Part of this phase, including the new patient wing featuring 18 single occupancy rooms and a rooftop helicopter landing pad, opened in October, 2009. The remodeled and relocated laboratory and pharmacy opened in May, 2010.  The newly remodeled Surgery Center and Family Birthing Center opened in July, 2010.  The final piece of the project was completed in April, 2011, and is an addition to house a new MRI, located near the front entrance and connecting to the Imaging Department.
