Temporary Medical Facility Opens In Moore
A new temporary medical facility is open and serving patients in Moore.
Moore Medical Center opened the temporary facility at noon Monday. The temporary, modular building includes treatment rooms, a triage area, as well as X-ray, CT, ultrasound and lab services.
The city has been without a medical center since the May 20 tornado destroyed the town's hospital. The Norman Regional Hospital Authority has approved a $28.8 million new hospital, but the temporary facility will serve the community for about two years until the permanent center is built.
The Norman Transcript reports (http://bit.ly/1c8S6qQ that the temporary facility was built by the same manufacturer that built a temporary hospital in Joplin, Mo., following that city's tornado.
