RAPID CITY, S.D. – Regional Health’s Rehabilitation Institute building, part of the Rapid City Hospital Campus at Fifth Street and Fairmont Boulevard, will be demolished later in January as the next phase of hospital construction begins.
Before demolition, the Rapid City Fire Department will conduct a series of training exercises in the vacant building. The exercises are planned for several days in January, beginning Wednesday, Jan. 16.
The Rehabilitation Institute’s departments and services were recently moved to other locations. Once the Rehabilitation Institute site is cleared, the contractor will complete steel framing on the new five-story hospital clinic addition and begin building the second parking garage west of the existing garage.
