DE SMET, S.D. (AP) - Crews are starting to work on a hospital expansion and renovation at Avera De Smet Memorial Hospital.

Groundbreaking will be Monday for the $3.2 million project in the town between Huron and Brookings.

The hospital says the $3.2 million plan involves adding new space and equipment as well as transforming existing space to be more efficient, patient-friendly and offer of state-of-the-art health care.

It includes remodeling two emergency rooms, remodeling the inpatient wing for private rooms, an expansion of physical therapy, a new radiology department, upgrading the facility’s appearance and infrastructure, adding space at the main entrance and improving the emergency entrance.

A capital campaign raised $1.7 million, more than double the original goal of $750,000.

The project should be done in 18 months to two years.
