Hospital Received USDA Loans and Grants for Expansion and Improvements

CLARINDA, Iowa, Oct. 26, 2022 – U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development State Director in Iowa Theresa Greenfield today highlighted how the Agency invested $9,500,000 in 2020 for the physical therapy facility expansion, a second surgery suite, a new pharmacy space, and hospital renovations at Clarinda Regional Health Center. In 2021, the hospital also received a $50,000 grant for surgical equipment. These investments will help expand critical services in Page County.

“This funding for the hospital makes southwest Iowa a better place to live and work and raise a family,” said Director Greenfield. “Under the leadership of President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Secretary Vilsack, USDA is committed to making sure that people, no matter where they live, have access to high-quality and reliable health care services.”

The hospital held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to note the opening of the expanded facility.

The investments were made through the Community Facilities Guaranteed Loan Program and the Community Facility Disaster Grant Program, now replaced by the Emergency Rural Health Care Grants program.
