A little over a year ago, a major announcement occurred when plans for a Women’s Center were unveiled by Bluffton Hospital – plans currently under construction inside the walls of the facility. A few notable updates have been made as the project enters into the final few months of its projected completion. The new diagnostics center, which includes a radiology lab and electrocardiogram (EKG), officially opened for business on Jan. 31. While it’s only been a couple of weeks time, Chris Keller, Bluffton Hospital chief administrative officer, said the opening of the diagnostics center has gone over really well.
