Missouri hospital getting $77M expansion with help from USDA

Bolivar, Mo.-based Citizens Memorial Hospital is planning a $77 million expansion and upgrade, which will be partially funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The USDA is providing nearly $58 million for the project through the Community Facilities Direct Loan Program, according to a news release published by KY3. Several local banks are funding more than $19 million for the expansion.

The project includes

  • Changing medical/surgical rooms from semiprivate to private, adding five pediatric rooms and adding four intensive care unit beds
  • Adding a third operating room and space to build a fourth 
  • Growing the emergency room bed capacity from 12 to 21 and adding a six-bed unit for behavioral health patients
  • Building two cardiac catheter units

"The hospital is in dire need of an update to its facilities so that current medical demands of the community can be met," USDA State Director Kyle Wilkens said in the news release. "The planned expansion of the hospital facility has been developing over the past several years with hospital leadership, board of directors and the community. All are supportive of this project, and USDA Rural Development is proud to provide funding."
