Construction at the North Platte Valley Medical Center in Saratoga will wrap up by the end of the month.

In a news release Sunday, hospital officials report that the latest construction schedule calls for work to be complete the last week of October with government inspections set to begin early in November. CEO Jeff Mincy told Bigfoot 99 that the inspection process could result in unexpected delays.

Mincy said he’s hopeful that any work needed to comply with state or federal regulations would be quick and easy fixes.

The USDA, Wyoming Health Department and other entities must provide final certifications before the hospital can start serving patients. Mincy said a formal opening of the facility is expected in early January. A day of “sneak peeks” for the community in advance of the grand opening is currently being planned.
