Americus -- Construction of Sumter Regional Hospital's temporary facility is about to kick into high gear. Trucks arrived in Americus Thursday with COGIM units. Those are high-tech modular units that can easily be connected in various configurations.

Delivery of the units was slightly delayed by bad weather in parts of Texas this week.  Administrators say now that they're here, it's a much-needed shot in the arm for the hospital.

"It will be a big shot in the arm, we will be able to have inpatient services, we can bring our labor and delivery unit back to Americus," said Marcus Johnson. "We will have seventy six inpatient beds. We will pretty much be able to have all of the same services we had at the hospital before the tornado."

 The interim hospital builder says their predictions are to have all of the COGIM units erected over the next month, with interior walls and sheet rocking beginning sometime in late September.
