Stanley Hospital Expansion

Posted: Updated:

The Mountrail County Health Center in Stanley will soon have a new emergency room.

The building's expansion and renovation will be a three phase project aimed at handling the town's recent population surge.

Bonnie Campo has more.

Just like other expanding hospitals in the state-- the Stanley health center has seen a dramatic increase in the number of patients in its waiting room, and phase one is almost complete.

(Sue Weston, Hospital Financial Officer) "The first phase has to do with remodeling the emergency room. Our service to the emergency room population has probably grown by fifty to sixty percent, and with that need comes the dramatic need for space. We have enclosed the ambulance bay for the convenience of the patients in the Fall weather conditions. We are adding a C-T scanner currently on site to help diagnose patients."

To help reach those goals--American Bank Center will donate $25-thousand each year over the next decade-- until their total dollar amount reaches of $250-thousand.

 (Heath Hetzel, American Bank Center) "You know the hospital has really expanded with the population and the growth in western North Dakota. The things that are going on in the area with the medical needs. With the donation of the $250-thousand dollars we're very excited to partner with the hospital, and I think it's a very worthwhile cause, and look forward to seeing the expansion complete."

The banks donation will go towards the hospitals end goal of $6.25 million. Which will fund the next steps in the project.

(Sue Weston, Hospital Financial Officer) "The phase two expansion if for the clinic. It's to add exam rooms for the physicians, and the final phase has to do with their nursing home portion of the facility, and that last phase we have been waiting on for a number of years and that is just as important as the first two."

The completion of the project has yet to be confirmed until phase two is finished. In Stanley, Bonnie Campo, KX News.

The hospital continues to search for more donations from the community and local businesses.
