New Renville County Hospital Progress 04 Apr 13

A decision on whether to move forward with a proposal to build a new Renville County Hospital and Clinics facility will likely be made by the end of the month. The $24-million project would construct a new health care facility on a site to be determined in Olivia. The Renville County Board was informed on Tuesday that a final proposal will be brought forward during an April 16th work session, with official action then possibly being taken at the board meeting one week later. The hospital board is hoping to obtain financing for the project through USDA Rural Development. A formal application would need to be prepared by this July. The hospital has been holding a series of outreach sessions around the county to explain the project, and has reportedly been receiving a great deal of support.
