Construction could launch before summer on the building of a 60,000 square foot structure set to go up adjacent to the Memorial Regional Hospital in Craig, Colorado.
The new 3-story structure is being designed to house in one location services that are right now offered in several other Memorial Regional Hospital structures and is expected to cost at least $29 million to build.
Located at 750 Hospital Loop, Memorial Regional Hospital’s main hospital was built in 2009 and designed to replace the organization’s original one-story facility built in 1949.
Plans call for that older structure at 785 Russell Street to be demolished upon the completion of the new Memorial Regional Hospital facility.
As part of a capital campaign, the project has just received a $500,000 grant from the Denver-based Colorado Health Foundation, a group dedicated to supporting a variety of health care initiatives.
Plans to build the new structure, which will also house infusion services, expanded physical therapy, and cardiac rehabilitation services, were announced last year. If all goes as planned, work on the new facility is expected to be completed in 2019.
