Phase 1 will renovate shell space into a new emergency department and add 25 beds to the hospital. Phase 2 will transform the existing emergency department into a pharmacy, reception area, and imaging lab. Finally, a third phase will include aesthetic and accessibility upgrades.
Construction is slated to start in August and is expected to take approximately 27 to 34 months to complete.
The project recently received a $25.3 million loan from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) to help cover the project costs.
