Hancock Medical Center is now loaded with some impressive medical equipment, as well.
Pascasio said, "We have every imagining modality that you can think of."
Phase two of the reconstruction work also gave the hospital a new and improved gift shop.
The five phase project is moving quickly. So fast that the work that was scheduled to be finished in 2014 could be done a lot sooner.
"We've actually combined phases three and four together we were actually able to coordinate that with the contractor, and we think we're going to be able to hopefully get done a little bit quicker, " explained Hank Wheeler, Hancock Medical Center Facilities.
"Upon completion of phases three and four, I would venture to say that not only will we have one of the best hospitals in the United States of America," said Larry Ladner, Chairman Board Of Trustees.
FEMA is funding the majority of the restoration work.
