LEXINGTON, Neb. (AP) - A two-year project to expand and renovate a central Nebraska hospital is nearing completion.

The Kearney Hub reports (https://bit.ly/1Un0m1F ) that the outpatient service center at Lexington Regional Health Center is scheduled to open Monday. The project has added more than 31,000 square feet to the hospital’s west side.

The wing is designed to house outpatient services in one location. It includes three operating rooms, nine pre- and post-operation recovery rooms, two endoscopy procedure rooms and four pods for visiting physician specialty clinics.

Crews broke ground for the $25 million project in April 2014. It was funded with a $15 million loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, a $5 million bank loan, state and federal tax credits and private donations.
