A multi-million dollar project that began in 2008 has come to fruition and the people of Douglas County and beyond will reap in its benefits.


This Sunday, the Douglas County Hospital (DCH) will host an open house from 1 to 4 p.m. to showcase its newest addition - a three-story, 110,000-square-foot facility that houses new private patient rooms, a new orthopedic clinic, new birth center and more.

It's an addition that makes Bill Flaig, DCH's administrator, happy and proud.
