COLUMBUS, Ind. - A central Indiana hospital is about to start work on an expansion project that was first planned before it was badly damaged in flooding six years ago.
The $30 million project at Columbus Regional Hospital will expand its emergency department and cancer center.
Hospital CEO Jim Bickel tells The Republic the emergency department's patient volume far exceeds what it was designed to handle and the cancer center has experienced a steady growth in the number of patients. The expansion is expected to be complete by the end of next year.
The hospital had planned a larger expansion project before 2008 flash flooding of its first floor and basement, which forced its evacuation and closure for several months.
