Construction for Cheyenne Regional Medical Center's expansion likely will start in January with a two-level parking garage. A cancer center will follow in the spring, hospital vice president David Squires told the hospital's board on Thursday. The board unanimously approved a scaled-back construction plan for the expansion. 

The reduction in scope is due to funding and the hospital's ability to take on bonding, Squires said. The cost of the revised phase is one that officials are comfortable that they can absorb and manage, he said. The hospital plans to issue about $75 million to $80 million in revenue bonds to help pay for it.
