Advancing Healthcare for Our Communities Capital Campaign

The Kimball Hospital Foundation is conducting the "Advancing Healthcare for Our Communities" capital campaign supporting the new hospital project. With an eye to the future, Kimball Health Services recognizes the generosity of donors through signature naming opportunities on various rooms and spaces in our new facility.

Naming opportunities in a hospital room, for example, is a special way to create a legacy for yourself, honor a loved one, or build awareness for your company or organization's community support.

Signature naming opportunities through the Kimball Hospital Foundation create a lasting reminder of a donor's commitment to our new hospital and will be appreciated by the Kimball community for many years to come.

Frequently Asked Questions

How was the project financed?

The project was funded through a USDA loan, county revenue bonds, and private donations through the "Advancing Healthcare for Our Communities" capital campaign.

What did the project cost?

The project cost was just over $43 million.

Medicare reimburses critical access hospitals like Kimball Health Services for costs incurred for both inpatient and outpatient services, including allowable costs, such as depreciation and interest related to building projects. 

This means Medicare can be expected to reimburse Kimball Health Services for more than 50% of the project cost.

Will this increase my taxes?

With this project, there is limited risk to taxpayers.

Kimball Health Services does not receive county funds and has not received funds for over 20 years. The hospital and clinic are supported solely by the revenue generated from our operation. This project expects that any bonds sold for financing will be paid back using hospital-generated revenues.
