Update

Highland Hospital said it is less than a month away from accepting its first patients.

The hospital will start taking child and adolescent patients on August 19 and will continue renovations before its official opening in January.

It will hold a community open house on Friday, August 16 from noon until four.

The hospital said it expects to boost its staff over the next few months, too.

 


 

Original Story

The Highland Hospital is moving into the old United Hospital Center in Harrison County.

Highland said progress is moving forward and the renovations are ahead of schedule.

The adolescent unit is on target to open August 18 and adult units should finish early in January of 2014.

The Hospital is working on filling key positions before that opening.

A soft opening is expected this fall.
