Americus -- Sumter Regional Hospital is entering a new phase in its reconstruction. Soon patients will have a new facility to serve their health needs.

The hospital is teaming up with FEMA to build an interim hospital. Cogim units, pre-fabricated buildings produced by an Italian company, will be used in the building of the facility.

"We are going to have about 70 in-patient beds. We will be able to return labor and care to the community. We will have some operating room facilities and critical care units," said President and CEO David Seagraves.

Sumter Regional is still in the process of filing damage reports from the March 1st tornado. The final phase in the recovery process is the rebuilding of the original hospital building.

That project is expected to take 18 to 40 months to complete.
