SIERRA VISTA, Ariz. – Officials at Sierra Vista Regional Health Center, or SVRHC, announced that the groundbreaking ceremony for the new hospitalwill be at 4 p.m. on Oct. 16.

Construction on the 100-bed facility is expected to begin in December.

SVRHC Board Chairman Bruce Dockter said, “This is an exciting milestone for Sierra Vista. The new hospital will expand healthcare options for the community, bring expanded economic opportunities, and be a benefit when attracting new business to the area.It is gratifying after so much hard work on the part of many people to see this happening and I look forward to seeing the actual construction begin.”
