Ventura Hospital Project Faces Delays
Delays ranging from steel delivery issues to problems with finding workers have helped [push] the planned opening of Ventura's new Community Memorial Hospital to summer 2017 — almost six years after work began and about two years after the targeted goal. Officials of the Ventura hospital said construction work on the six-story, 250-bed project could be completed as soon as February 2017. The opening likely will come months later because of a transition that involves state licensing, stocking the new hospital with equipment and supplies, and training the staff. (Kisken, 9/9)
