Pana Community Hospital is preparing to break ground on the largest expansion projects they've undertaken in nearly 40 years. The additions focus on increasing the efficiency of the hospital, as well as improving the patient experience at the hospital.
PCH President and CEO Trina Casner appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show to discuss the expansion, and gave a preview of what some of the upgrades will encompass.
Phase two of the project includes additions to house an urgent care center and new main entrance of the hospital.
The expansion will allow the hospital to care for more patients than it has the ability to currently.
Casner invited the public to come out to the projects groundbreaking ceremony, taking place on August 10th beginning at 3pm on the front lawn of the hospital, with refreshments offered to those who attend.
