Construction at the new Peach County Hospital is completed and the new building is full of new medical tools for staff. It won't open its doors for patients until July, but 13WMAZ got a sneak peek of the new hospital.

Some of the new features that will be used to treat Peach County patients include a state-of-the-art operating room suite, 25-bed private hospital rooms, and a larger emergency room.

"We have equipped the hospital with really state-of-the-art technology, some equipment and services that they just didn't have in the current hospital, so our ability to serve the needs of Peach County residents has greatly increased," said Elbert McQueen, the Vice President of Regional Development for Central Georgia Health System.

The project cost $20 million according to McQueen. Nancy Peed, the CEO of the new hospital, said this project was years in the making.

"Well, we have had about a ten-year journey, and all of us have really held to the faith and the hope of this hospital, and I think we all knew this day would come. It was a little longer coming than we thought," said Peed.

The ribbon-cutting will be Thursday at 9:00 am and public tours will follow soon after.
