Stanton County Residents To Vote On Hospital Renovations
02/26/2010

In less than a week Stanton County voters will decide on whether to update its aging hospital in a special election.

It will take nearly $12.7 million to update the hospital’s aging facilities. Improvements include expanding the emergency department and replacing infrastructure such as heating and cooling systems. All services would be moved into the main facility. Now many patients have to go outside or down the street to other buildings around town.

The bathrooms also need to be updated to be compliant with the Americans for Disabilities Act and more private rooms are needed. They’re all things Dr. Bill Troup says are necessary to recruit new doctors.

So what will all the improvements cost residents if approved? The owner of a $100,000 home will pay near $113 a year on property taxes, which equals a little more than $9 a month. Officials feel it’s a small price to pay for an important piece of the community.

Voters will decide on the issue next Tuesday, March 2nd.

If approved, construction on the project will start in September and take about 15 months to complete.
