FARGO, ND. (KFGO AM) -- Essentia Health in Fargo says despite the cold weather, it's still planning to open its new $50 million expansion next January.

Bad weather cost 17 work days, but hospital leaders are still optimistic the opening will be on schedule.

It's a 130 thousand-square-foot addition being added to a 14-year-old structure that is already bursting at the seams...all while maintaining normal hospital hours.

Essentia says the new expansion could create up to 100 new jobs.
