MOORE, Okla. – Plans are now in place to build temporary hospital in Moore.

The Moore Medical Center was destroyed by the May 20th tornado and had to be torn down.

The facility will have nearly 11,000 square feet of usable space.

It will have a trauma room, a triage room and six treatment rooms as well as a lab, ultrasound, x-ray, CT and other support services.

Builders said they expect the temporary facility to be open in November.

Officials said it will operate for two years while a permanent structure is built.
