LIBERTY - Five bids for an expansion to the Primary Care Clinic that ranged from $481,043 to $805,580 were reviewed Monday night by the Casey County Hospital Board of Trustees.
The board decided to study two of the bids before awarding a contract. It expects to approve the contract May 11.
The expansion of the Primary Care building will double the length, making the size 56 feet by 168 feet. The old section will get a new floor, a larger waiting room and a complete renovation. The new section will be used for clinic space and purchasing and medical records. The exterior will be brick to match the existing building.
Board member Dennie Johnson said a contract must have a $1 million performance bond, and the starting date and length of construction need to be worked out. He also said new construction on the clinic must be finished before renovation begins on the current building.
