KCHS Annual Golf Tournament June 10

Kearney County Health Services will host the 17th Annual Golf Tournament on Thursday, June 10 at Minden Country Club. The theme this year is Golfing Fore Healthcare. Proceeds from this year’s event will be used to assist in the remodeling costs of the new Medical Clinic space.

The remodeling of the Minden Medical Clinic included a 43,000 square foot remodel of existing clinic and hospital space. The layout of the clinic space required complete rework of the mechanical, electrical, and plumbing along with all new finishes. HVAC units are being replaced and a CT Room was added. With a 37 percent increase in clinic visits between 2018 and 2019 and successful recruitment of new medical providers, the KCHS Board of Trustees approved the project in March 2019.

The clinic now has 13 exam rooms, two treatment rooms, and ten offices. The interior of the clinic was completed in January, but with poor weather the exterior was delayed. Total cost of the project was $2.4 million. KCHS secured a loan for the remodeling project without an increase in property tax or bond.
