As the shovels break ground for the first time at Buena Vista Regional Medical Center, a 26 million dollar two-year addition is set in motion, bringing about the change that CEO Rob Colerick says they need to stay competitive.
"Healthcare is changing. It’s important for us to keep up with that change, and also make sure that we’re here for the next future generations. We think this project will help us do that," Rob Colerick, BVRMC CEO said.
The project will add a new emergency room, entry way, and a whole second floor to the facility, which serves most of the communities in a 65-mile radius.
