Hospital Expansion, Improvements Advance Care At KCHS
On Friday, September 27, Kearney County residents will have an opportunity to see first-hand the new construction and remodeling at the Kearney County Hospital during their grand opening.
The $10 million project began two years ago when Kearney County voters approved the issuance of bonds to fund the construction of a new patient room wing and renovate the existing 56 year old facility. Kearney County Health Services (KCHS) broke ground on the project on September 28, 2011.
The improvement project began with the installation of new heating and air systems, as well as a complete sprinkler system for fire control.
The renovation of the 7,900 square feet former acute care wing converted the space into a new larger two bay emergency room with waiting area, four outpatient exam rooms with two outpatient physician offices, a pharmacy area, new nurses’ station, and a procedure room.
The former ER room was expanded into the new emergency care area. The side-by-side emergency bays provide medical staff quick and easy access to both rooms while providing privacy to patients.
