Happy New Year !

Happy New Year to all and hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday. This year’s Chinese New Year is the year of the rooster, being the sign of dawn and awakening, triumph and success can only be achieved at the price of hard work and patience in 2017.  We are looking forward to a year of success in completing the new additions and remodeling.  Crews are close to finishing up the new kitchen and turning over to the CCNSHCC staff.  Progress continues on the new hospital addition.  The crews are painting the metal doorways and rooms.
