Construction is moving along on schedule on Prineville's new hospital.
The new facility will open up this September.
St. Charles Prineville CEO Jeanie Gentry says although the new hosptial will be smaller, no one is losing their jobs.
"We don't have any plans to do any reductions or layoffs. It is 30 percent smaller in square footage than the current facility, but its more efficient and more flexible and we will be getting the most out of every square foot."
The new hospital is scheduled to open by the end of September.
As for the former hospital, the Pioneer Hospital Board will decide what it will be used for. Some considerations include county office space, a county justice center or possibly a veterans clinic.
