Officials at Holton Community Hospital, Holton, Kan., broke ground last week for a multi-million dollar expansion that looks to add a new emergency department, office spaces, and outpatient areas. According to the Holton Community Hospital Foundation, hospital execs worked closely with the United States Department of Agriculture to secure a loan for the project.

According to KSNT News, the hospital started raising money last year and eventually raised $2 million. The interest will be used to pay off a $14 million loan. The foundation also reports that, “A significant portion of the project will be adapting the current space; the new construction provisions from the USDA will allow the construction of a new 6,594-square-foot clinic space to the southeast of the current hospital building.” Holton Community Hospital is owned by Rural Health Resources of Jackson County.
