Construction of the new Medical Arts Center at Sheridan Memorial Hospital remains on track for completion in September of next year.

Rob Forister, who's the hospital director of facilities support, reported on the building at Wednesday's meeting of the hospital board of trustees.

There were no action items on the agenda, but trustees heard reports from various staff and department heads, including Ada Kirven, director of donor relations for the hospital foundation. Kirven invited hospital trustees to the employee partners breakfast, which will be Dec. 21. The foundation holds the breakfast annually to recognize the hospital employees who are also foundation members.

Also during the trustees' meeting, Mary Kaercher, the hospital's service line coordinator, unveiled a video that's part of a mammography campaign that will start Jan. 1. The campaign started as a way to introduce the hospital's new 3D mammography equipment, but Kaercher said there's an even more important message to deliver to women in the community.

In fact, Kaercher said, the chance of cure is nearly 100 percent if breast cancer is detected early.

Also at the meeting, hospital CEO Mike McCafferty said the hospital has officially made an agreement with Dr. Lindsay Capron, an OB/GYN, and she will be joining the hospital staff in October of next year.
