Once complete, the expanded area will house two rooms dedicated
to gastroenterology and pain management procedures. The project is
expected to be completed in the fall.
"We are always looking for ways to provide more convenient
access to healthcare services for our patients," said Perry
Henderson, senior administrator at ETMC Pittsburg. "GI and pain
management procedures are among the most commonly performed. We are
excited to be expanding our facility to better accommodate these
procedures and make them more easily accessible to the people of
Camp County and the surrounding area."
Hammel, Green & Abrahamson of Minneapolis is the project's
architect. Vaughn Construction is the general contractor and Adams
Engineering is the civil engineer.
