* Expanded existing radiology to include new X-ray and Computed Tomography (CT) spaces.
* Green roof over expanded radiology area.
Renovations to the existing facility include:
* New lab in existing lower-level shelled space, including blood bank, hematology, chemistry, microbiology, histology, and urinalysis spaces.
* Expanded radiology into new expansion.
* New canteen/deli area in existing loading dock.

To celebrate the project completion and to offer a sneak peek, ProHealth Care held a ribbon cutting ceremony and community open house on June 27. Participants toured the emergency department, met the community’s new emergency services team, participated in interactive screenings and looked inside an ambulance.
Mortenson Construction managed the project, which was designed by Eppstein Uhen.
