WhidbeyHealth has paid all its bills for its major facility improvements and expansion that began more than five years ago.
Project Manager Marc Estvold told Whidbey Island public hospital district commissioners Monday morning that the total costs came to about $55.5 million.
In 2013, voters approved a $50 million bond for the project, which included a new 39-bed patient wing, new parking lot and pharmacy.
About $5 million of the total paid for additions, such as the health education center, pharmacy improvements and new heating and cooling system in surgical rooms, Estvold said. WhidbeyHealth received a $270,000 grant from Puget Sound Energy because of the system’s efficiency, he said.
The total bonded expenditures totaled approximately $50.2 million. There are no outstanding costs associated with the projects, Estvold said.
Hospital Commissioner Ron Wallin commended Estvold and others on the team for keeping the project close to the budgeted amount.
