PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (AP) — Despite a few weather-related delays, work is back on schedule for the new Choctaw Health Center, set to open in spring 2015.

The hospital is being built on the eastern side of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians reservation near Philadelphia.

Project manager Stephen Hockins tells a local newspaper crews lost about 15 days to bad weather.

Hockins says the current schedule will see construction complete by Dec. 30. The hospital is expected to open by spring 2015.

Once complete the facility will be over twice the size of the current Choctaw Health Center.

Opened in 1976, the current Choctaw Health Center was built for a Tribal population of 4,000.

It now serves the 10,000 plus members of the Tribe, as well as eligible non-members.
