A Close Look At Proposed Hospital
April 1, 2021
Operating in a 70-year-old building and facing rising patient numbers, Kimball Health Services is looking to build a new hospital.
Hospital officials say the new facility would enhance patient care, comfort and privacy, replace the current facility that's at the end of its useful life, and expand services to meet current demand and future needs.
The increase in services and patient numbers as reported by Kimball Health Services:
• Hospital discharges up 24%.
• Rural health clinic visits up 10%.
• Specialty clinic visits up 65%.
• Rehab services up 13%.
• Imaging service up 50%.
