Once complete, the expanded area will house two rooms dedicated to gastroenterology and pain management procedures. The project is expected to be completed in the fall.

"We are always looking for ways to provide more convenient access to healthcare services for our patients," said Perry Henderson, senior administrator at ETMC Pittsburg. "GI and pain management procedures are among the most commonly performed. We are excited to be expanding our facility to better accommodate these procedures and make them more easily accessible to the people of Camp County and the surrounding area."

Hammel, Green & Abrahamson of Minneapolis is the project's architect. Vaughn Construction is the general contractor and Adams Engineering is the civil engineer.
