MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Officials at Colquitt Regional Medical Center say a major construction project remains on schedule.

 The project includes renovations to the Intensive Care Unit and Surgery Department and expanding the Emergency Center from 16 to 26 rooms with state of the art equipment. The CEO says it's needed to meet their service demands.

"Really the demand. We see about 28,000 visits a year and for about 28,000 visits we need somewhere around 26 emergency rooms. We were actually seeing 28,000 visits in 16 rooms a year," said Jim Matney.        

The emergency department is open while construction continues.  The $30 million dollar project is expected to be complete in November.
