Merritt emergency room expansion on schedule... and budget.
The $6.5 million project will add an additional 100 square metres to the emergency room at the Nicola Valley Hospital and Health Centre.
Six months into construction, IHA Corporate Director of Facility Management of Operations Lorne Sisley says the foundation is now complete.
"We are still tracking on time, and on budget. The foundation is now in place, and we are now working on getting the structure in above that. So, the community will really start to see things happening over the coming months."
Sisley says the expectation is that the new emergency room will be completed by the fall.
