TULIA, SWISHER COUNTY - Nurses and doctors are known to have crazy schedules—on any given day they could work multiple, long hour shifts.
That's been the case at Swisher Memorial in Tulia and because of this, they're introducing micro homes to keep the staff comfortable but also close to work.
Swisher Memorial broke ground on these mirco homes—two 12x12 foot homes, equipped with a living room, kitchen, bathroom, and an upstairs bed.
The tiny homes will be across the street from the hospital, far enough to relax peacefully but close enough in case of an emergency.
President and CEO of NOMAD Micro Homes Inc., Ian Kent, designed these tiny homes for the hospital and says they could be a growing trend for the medical industry.
The new micro homes should be complete by the end of September 2016.

Where is Trulia? It's south of the Real Estate Center's contest winner of "Small Towns, Great Names."
It's also east of Nazareth.
