Harrison County Community Hospital (HCCH) proudly announces a significant milestone in its commitment to advancing healthcare in the community. This groundbreaking new building project, aimed at expanding and modernizing healthcare facilities, reflects HCCH’s dedication to providing state-of-the-art medical services and enhancing overall community well-being.
The ambitious project includes the construction of a new facility equipped with the latest technology to meet the growing healthcare needs of Harrison County residents. This endeavor will feature expanded emergency services, advanced diagnostic imaging capabilities, private patient rooms including patient bathrooms, and a range of specialty clinics – all conveniently housed under one roof. This strategic expansion is a testament to HCCH’s unwavering dedication to providing accessible, high-quality healthcare services to the local community. Glenn Dale Cox, Chair of the Harrison County Community Hospital Board of Directors, expressed his enthusiasm for the project, stating, “This is a pivotal step in our ongoing mission to prioritize the health and well-being of our community. This new facility will not only enhance the quality of care we provide but also ensure that Harrison County residents have access to a comprehensive range of medical services close to home.”
All financing for the new hospital has been secured. MW Builders, Inc. of Lenexa, Kansas, the lowest bidder, has been granted the contract to initiate construction on the new hospital project. This momentous occasion marks the realization of years of planning and hard work by the board of directors. Construction is set to commence in mid-March (weather permitting) with a 27-month timeframe. The initial focus will be rerouting the road, site, and foundational dirt work.
The new building project is not only expected to create jobs within the community and stimulate economic growth but will also further solidify HCCH’s position as a leading healthcare provider in the region.
The Harrison County Community Hospital District warmly invites community members, stakeholders, and media representatives to stay informed about the progress of the new hospital project. Regular updates and milestones will be shared to keep everyone abreast of this transformative project.
