Some assembly required on SRH interim hospital

June 29, 2007

Americus-  Sumter County will have a new temporary hospital in three months, but some assembly is required.

Friday, FEMA, GEMA, and Sumter Regional Hospital officials, unveiled the high tech modular units that will be used to build the interim facility. The modular hospital will be the first of its kind in the United States and will provide much needed assistants for local residents.

"We will have approximately seventy in patient rooms, we will be able to return labor and delivery to the community what we can't offer right now. We'll have the single room maternity concept as we had before in the hospital. We will have four surgical suits, one will be dedicated to OB needs. We can't do surgery right now," said David Seagraves, Sumter Regional Hospital CEO.

Sumter County has been without inpatient care since the hospital was heavily damaged in the March first tornado. Seagraves says the success of the interim hospital will come from its use and hopes residents will take advantage of the interim hospital.
