Cheyenne Hospital Hoping To Open New Facility Soon
Officials with Cheyenne Regional Medical Center say they are now hoping to formally open the hospital's new emergency room in December.
The new $25 million center had originally be scheduled to open on October 28. But hospital officials say that while conducting drills and testing they discovered a problem with the internal communications system that could pose a security risk. Tracy Garcia, Director of Trauma and Emergency Services, says the company that installed the system is working on-site this week to repair the problems.
Garcia says the hospital will re-test the system towards the end of this week. She says if the problems are corrected the hospital will announce a new opening date. She adds the hospital hopes to begin operating the new facility sometime next month, assuming there are no more problems.
