Open house allowed tours to the community

Around 160 people stopped by to see the progress at the open house last Friday! Thank you to everyone who took part in the excitement. Buck’s Hardware supplied planters for the front walkway to direct people to the meeting place. Tours started in the garage, where people were taken to the hospital rooms, Care Center, procedure/operating rooms and the ER. More open houses will be scheduled in the future as the hospital progresses.
