Opening of Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s medical building in Eudora may be delayed
There may be a delay in the opening of Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s medical building in Eudora.
The $2.5 million building was scheduled to open in the beginning of March.
During Wednesday’s board meeting, LMH Vice President Jeff Novorr said it could be April 29 before the project is completed because of a delay in getting some manufactured beams that are needed to support the roof.
LMH’s new director of facilities, Todd Koch (pronounced cook), is hoping that’s not the case.
“I will be spending the next few weeks figuring out if anything can be done,” he said.
Koch started the job Monday and was introduced to the board Wednesday. He has worked the past 11 years for JE Dunn Construction Co.
The Eudora building, near Kansas Highway 10 and Church Street, will have 11 exam rooms, a procedure room and dedicated X-ray equipment. LMH Kreider Rehabilitation Services will offer outpatient physical therapy, and Byrne’s Pharmacy will lease space in the building.
