Americus-  It will be another two months before the interim hospital, currently under construction, is done.

Work continues on that temporary facility referred to as Sumter Regional East. The 72-bed inpatient facility will serve as the community hospital for the next three years. Crews continue to pour cement and paint the buildings that are nearly complete.

"I think we're probably at about 95 percent done. So, in a month we're getting the equipment in there and doing some regulatory work so we're almost there," said Comfort Greene, SRH Vice President of Communications.

The keys for the facility will be turned over in mid-January, then hospital staff can begin to move equipment in. Sumter Regional East should open to the public in late February.
