Trustees Approve Purchases, Hear Vaccine Updates

The Kearney County Health Services Board of Trustees met February 23. Two purchase requests were presented to the board under new business.

First was a surgical table attachment to be used for positioning during shoulder procedures. The attachment will make surgeries easier and safer going forward with more complex procedures like total shoulder replacements. The shoulder chair positioner purchase for $5,963.35 was approved.

Two quotes were received for a new water heater to replace the broken unit in Acute. The lower proposal from O’Hara Plumbing for $19,620 was approved.
