AMERICUS, GA (WALB) – Despite some rain, work continued today at the site of the new Phoebe Sumter hospital.

Three of the four buildings at the site are scheduled to be finished in February.  They'll house services including Pediatrics and Orthopedics.

Those three buildings total a little more than 54,000 square feet, which will make them almost as large as the entire temporary hospital currently in use.

With much more space in the new facilities, more services could be offered in the future.

Marcus Johnson of Phoebe Sumter Hospital said, "we'll have an opportunity to have more services. We'll be able to offer more services and have all of our services in one spot."

A topping out ceremony for the new hospital will be held in early November and it is expected to be finished late next year.
