The hospital rooms are only missing patients! On the outside, a good part of the retaining wall that separates the front entrance from the building is complete. The third and final phase of the Care Center is coming along, now having underground plumbing finished. With the hopes of good weather, the crew will pour the slab soon and keep working away at the entrance.
