The Ogallala Community Hospital has announced a $2 million expansion plan that will provide additional space for specialists.
The North Platte Telegraph reports (http://bit.ly/VkDlNr) that the 18-bed hospital plans to add between 3,800 and 5,000 square feet.
Hospital CEO Sharon Lind says the hospital is "running out of room."
Administrators hope the expansion will make it easier to recruit more doctors. The hospital wants to add three family practice providers, four to six full-time support staffers and nearly double its number of specialists to almost 20.
Lind says the hospital hopes to break ground in April and complete construction by January 2014
