Desert Dispatch

Construction is finally set to begin on Barstow’s new hospital and is still scheduled to be finished by the end of 2012, hospital officials say.

Workers have already begun grading the site at Mountain View Street and Helen Runyon Drive across the street from the existing hospital. By the end of the year contractors will have laid the hospital’s foundation and utility lines, said hospital spokesman John Rader.
