The new building will compliment the Daleville Town Center and its classic and traditional structures, according to Victor E. Giovanetti, President of HCA Southwest Virginia. Construction, which has been delayed by weather, should begin this spring and the building should be occupied in 2011.

The building will serve as an anchor for the Daleville Town Center, Karen Waldron with Fralin and Waldron said. It will be the first imaging center in Botetourt County.
