Community Hospital Association

The Community Hospital Association secured $17 million in ARRA funding to expand McCook’s Community Hospital and better serve the community needs. Funding for the project was provided through a $17 million Rural Development community facility loan, funded under the Recovery Act. An additional $15 million Rural Development community facility guaranteed loan was financed through Thayer County Bank of Hebron, Neb., representing a group of Independent Community Banks in Nebraska. The hospital will contribute the remaining $2,730,000 needed. The Community Hospital currently employs 250 staff; 197 full-time & 53 part-time.
