The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently announced that seven Emergency Rural Health Care Grant awards will go to rural Iowa hospitals for a total of $5,187,500. Regional Health Services of Howard County in Cresco received a $1,000,000 grant to help build a 3,900-square-foot clinic addition. This project will include nine exam rooms, three offices, three nurses’ stations, and a procedure room to support COVID-19 recovery efforts.
“These grants are big investments in Iowa’s healthcare infrastructure, so that we can care for the people in our hometown communities and rural areas,” said Theresa Greenfield, USDA Rural Development State Director in Iowa. “As an advocate for rural Americans, USDA is funding critical facilities to make medical services more modern and accessible. By moving fast to improve rural hospitals, we are helping create more positive healthcare activities and outcomes for our family, friends, and neighbors all across Iowa.”
Additional awards will be announced in the coming months.
