Sumter County-- Residents of Sumter County got a sneak peek Sunday into a brand new medical facility.

Sumter Regional Hospital completed Phase One of its new Outpatient Health and Wellness Facility. It's a healthplex that will offer patients a variety of services. Employees gave residents a look into the new facility from it's new X-Ray machine to a state of the art MRI. There's also a special mammogram section for women.

The healthplex will be a huge benefit to the Sumter County community.

"This first phase will bring some services that haven't been available to our community yet particularly the latest and greatest in technology," says President and CEO David Seagraves.

"This building was formerly the old Wal-mart property and the hospital bought this property a number of years ago and one of the things that we've been excited about is to see the property developed," says Sumter Regional Foundation Chairman Brent Williams.

This first phase in redevelopment only used 8,000 of the building's 60,000 square feet. They're currently working on starting phase two which will include a wellness and fitness center. The healthplex will open some time in the near future.
