Construction is on track to add 3,600 square feet to the Redfield Community Memorial Hospital clinic, said Terry DeJong, chief executive officer and administrator of CMH.

"We had a delay in the shipment of steel and we lost about a week of construction time," DeJong said."But it's not enough to throw the construction schedule off."
The two-phase project expanding the clinic is funded by a $750,000 federal grant and the hospital will pay for the difference on the expected total cost of $854,000.
The original clinic has about 5,600 square feet and is no longer big enough, DeJong said.
"It was originally designed for two doctors," he said, "We have six providers now."
Phase one of the project, which started in early June, will add a new building to the clinic and phase two will be to remodel the old building, DeJong said.
"When it's done we'll open up the hallway so it'll all be one building."
DeJong said the expansion will not only give the current personnel more room to work, it will make it possible to add about two more doctors to the clinic.
"That's about what the size of this community needs," DeJong said."We have to have adequate working area for the providers and we just don't have that right now."
The hospital serves Redfield and communities within about 40 miles of the town, DeJong said.
The project is scheduled to finish some time in spring 2004.The new clinic will include 17 examination rooms, an enlarged procedure/treatment room, an enlarged nurse station, a transcription room, a laboratory and six physicians offices, DeJong said.
"We hope to enclose the phase one building before the bad weather hits," he said.
And ideally the physicians will work in the new building while the original building is being remodeled.
"We are in the process of trying to get a grand transition plan," DeJong said.

CEO DeJong retires - Promises smooth transition at CMH

...
After a career spanning 50 years, Community Memorial Hospital CEO Terry DeJong has decided the time is right to retire and begin working on his own personal 'bucket list'. That's the word he gave the CMH Board of Governors at a special meeting held Wednesday, June 8.
DeJong, who came to Redfield in 2003, is originally from the southeastern part of South Dakota. He joined the Marine Corp after high school and went on to further his education by studying Electrical Engineering. He would earn a Bachelor of Science in math, finance, and accounting while working full time for a power company.
"Back then they didn't have all the grants, loans, and financial assistance available now. We had to work to pay as we went," says DeJong. It was during this time that DeJong saw an ad for the newly established Medicare program seeking auditors. DeJong, whose interest was piqued by the ad, says with a laugh, "I had fully intended to become an Electrical Engineer but this opportunity presented itself and with one thing leading to another, here I am."
DeJong would spend seven years as a Medicare auditor in South Dakota and Western Iowa.
...
DeJong continued to expand the scope of his professional career starting his own Medical consulting business while in his role as Hospital Administrator in Iowa. He would go on to oversee construction of hospital additions in Sac City, Cherokee, Rock Valley and Ida Grove, all located in western Iowa.
During that time, DeJong continued serving his country in the Army Reserves, a second career that has led to 21 overseas tours in places such as Central America, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Korea, Germany and Berlin. "I've always said I should write a book about my experiences," says DeJong. "Maybe this will be the right time to do that."
Just before coming to Redfield, in time to oversee construction of the clinic expansion and remodel of the existing clinic, DeJong would be mobilized again as a result of 9/11. His plan upon arriving at Redfield was to do some master planning at the completion of the project and determine what the future would hold. The following years would determine the necessity of expansion and remodeling of the current hospital facility as well as construction of a new area. It would also bring a final mobilization for DeJong to Afghanistan in the midst of it. His military status now? "I am United States Armed Forces retired."
For DeJong and his wife, who have three sons, time has been a precious commodity. Something he would like to change with his retirement as he makes plans to just slow down. "I want to have time to do the things I enjoy that I haven't been able to get to so much in the past," said DeJong who hopes to spend more time with family, working on rebuilding his old cars, and woodworking, as well as filling his role on the various historical societies and boards he is a part of.
