(COLUMBUS) - Columbus Regional Hospital officially reopens its inpatient care and surgical services on this morning.

The hospital closed after suffering an estimated $210 million in damage following the June 7 flooding.

The restoration project took five months and hospital CEO Jim Bickel says the building is now in much better shape than it was prior to the storm.

He says the hospital didn't lose any of its 1,800 employees or 225 doctors during the closing.
