Digging with large equipment

"Make-ready" projects started wrapping up in April for the official start of construction on May 6, 2024. These projects included:

  • Temporary kitchen setup, including the temporary loading dock and kitchen ramp.
  • Finishing the north parking lot expansion for employee parking.
  • Temporarily moving the Hwy. 83 crosswalk to the north.
  • Relocating utilities on the west side of the hospital near the helicopter pad.

Mobile kitchen trailers

The mobile kitchen units arrived in late March. Workers are assembling the temporary kitchen using five trailer units. The last day for serving meals in the current cafeteria is Saturday, May 4, 2024. The temporary kitchen is outside the Community Rooms, which will be used as the cafeteria during construction. The cafeteria will be torn down before the expansion construction begins.

Construction continues on the north parking lot expansion and should be completed by the end of April. The new permanent spaces will help offset the loss of spaces on the south side of the hospital during construction.

North Parking Lot Construction

Construction started Feb. 12, 2024, to expand the parking lot on the north side of the hospital. The lot helps offset parking spaces on the south side of the hospital that will be unavailable during construction.
