Construction of the new additions at Pana Community Hospital are now well underway. The $20.1 million project is the biggest construction project the hospital has taken on in over 40 years.
The hospital’s marketing manager Melissa Rybolt says there have been many jobs completed to prepare for building the foundation to the addition to the back of the hospital.
Rybolt says there are multiple additions that will be housed in the new part of the building, and the new addition will help provide better healthcare for those in the community once completed.
The new addition to the back of the hospital is a part of phase one of the project. The two phase project is expected to be completed by March of 2019.
