Plans for Lawrence Memorial Hospital’s primary care facility in Eudora are moving forward.
And hospital officials say construction could start in a few months, now that Eudora Planning Commissioners have approved plans for the $2 million 10,000-square-foot building. Design work should be complete in April, said Gene Meyer, the hospital’s CEO.
“There’s not a lot of construction going on around the country,” he said. “I would imagine that once we bid it out and choose somebody, we could get started on it soon thereafter.”
The building will accommodate at least two doctors and will include space for radiology, physical therapists and lease space for a retail pharmacist. It will be constructed on a 24-acre site just southeast of the Church Street exit on Kansas Highway 10.
