A loan of $47 Million dollars for the Harrison County Community Hospital District in Bethany was approved by the USDA Rural Development. The Community Facilities Loan and Grant Program will be used to construct a new hospital for the Harrison County Community Hospital District. The new facility will replace the existing critical access hospital with a 14-bed acute care and swing-bed unit. This will include 10 private patient rooms, including one patient isolation room and two semi-private rooms. The emergency department will include two trauma/isolation rooms, three exam rooms, and triage rooms complimenting the emergency department. A maintenance and storage building will also be constructed.
