New Facility Update #13

November 19, 2009

During the weeks of November 9 and 16, the hospital construction project continued to remain ahead of schedule.  The drywall installation in the acute care department was nearly completed.  Taping and painting will begin soon.  The circle driveway at the main entry was poured.  Electrical, duct work and plumbing rough-ins in the acute care department were completed and well underway in the surgery, radiology, emergency room, maintenance and purchasing departments.

The frames for the large window openings in the front lobby, chapel area, rehab and acute care will be built and installed soon with the glass to arrive later this year.   The final paving to be completed soon consists of some sidewalk and the helicopter pad.  Also, the connecting drive between Valley View Living Center and the new hospital will be completed in the next week, weather permitting.
