The Tri County Hospital is slow to come to fruition but it’s still on track to happen says the facility’s chief executive officer.

Frank Schupp, who is in Arkansas on business this week, said his company is working on doing a joint venture with another company to finalize financing and make the hospital a reality.

Schupp said he was not at liberty to reveal the name of the other company, but he expects financing to be worked out in 30-45 days.

“It’s still active and alive,” he said, assuring the hospital will “definitely” be built.

He said there was no change in plans for a two-story facility that he unveiled at a September Chiefland City Commission meeting.

The company is negotiating a contract with an ecological study firm to conduct a study of the proposed construction site to make sure there are no endangered or threatened species living on the site.

Plans call for the hospital to open in March 2010. Schupp told the commission it will have 106,000 square feet and the total cost is expected to be about $53.2 million.
