Rice Hospital awards bids for care center project


WILLMAR -- Bids totaling $1.3 million were awarded Thursday for construction of a new addition at the Rice Care Center to house the skilled nursing facility's short-term rehabilitation program.

At a special meeting, Rice Memorial Hospital board members voted to accept all the bids, except for mechanical and electrical work, which is being submitted for another round of bidding. These two portions of the project are expected to account for another $1 million or so.
