This new design and construction replacement hospital will feature 114 private-suite beds and feature operating suites, intensive care, obstetrics and clinic totaling square foot of area. A free-standing energy center to provide central heat and cooling is also a part of the project. The new facility will replace the existing 201-bed hospital which is nestled on a 160-acre campus and provides a comprehensive array of inpatient and outpatient medical and surgical services. At the main campus, services include an inpatient hospital, a women’s center providing maternity and breast care services, a health and fitness center and a nursing care facility.
