RUTLAND, VT. (AP) Construction is expected to begin on the latest addition to the Rutland Regional Medical Center.

Peg Bolgioni, marketing and public relations director of the Vermont hospital, said construction was set to start April 8 and is not expected to affect patient access to the hospital or its campus.

The Rutland Herald reports the $21.7 million, 37,000-sq.-ft., two-story building will house the orthopedic; ear, nose, throat and audiology; and other practices.

In a statement, the hospital said there will be some construction traffic and noise. Officials are asking for understanding from the public.

Construction is expected to be completed by the end of the summer next year.
