DERBY, Kan. (AP) - A Kansas City-based real estate company says it will build a $40 million hospital in Derby.

The CBC Real Estate says in a news release that the hospital, to be called Rock Regional Hospital, is expected to open in 2018.

The company says the 65,000-square-foot hospital will include 12 inpatient beds, 12 surgical beds and six intensive care unit beds. It also will have three operating rooms, two procedure rooms, three catheterization lab rooms and three emergency rooms.

An adjacent 40,000-square-foot building will house medical offices.

Candor Healthcare, a Texas-based hospital management company, will oversee the hospital.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/29Y0aGD ) health care offerings in Derby have been expanding. Wesley Healthcare plans to open its Derby ER in November and another walk-in clinic opened last week.
