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. The ceremony will be held at the hospital’s east campus near the Outpatient Surgery Center located at 151 Colonia de Salud in Sierra Vista. Construction on the 100-bed facility is expected to begin in December.
