Board of Directors Met August 15

August 28, 2018

McCook, Nebraska—Following their traditional month off in July, Community Hospital board members met August 15 for their monthly board meeting. At the meeting board members ratified a new board member to the Community Hospital Health Foundation board and passed a resolution to approve financing for the upcoming building project.

The board ratified the appointment of Neil Gohl to the Community Hospital Health Foundation board of directors. Gohl will fill the remaining term of Bill Burton who resigned to move to eastern Nebraska.

A resolution passed allowing the officers to enter into the construction loan of $15 million to partially finance the upcoming building project. This financing will be used after the Hospital has spent the $3 million of owner funds committed to this project. The construction loan from Thayer County Bank will be financed by a compilation of correspondent banks in Nebraska, including MNB Bank in McCook, Thayer County Bank, First State Bank, Bankers Bank of the West, Core Bank, Frontier Bank, Sioux Falls SD and Plattsmouth State Bank. The post-construction lending documents will be completed once a contract with construction contractor, Sampson Construction, is complete. This will include lending through Thayer County Bank and USDA Rural Development direct lending.

Community Hospital’s building project includes expanding the Medical Specialists Center and Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation, and updating the hospital kitchen along with some smaller projects. Sampson Construction hopes to mobilize on site in September to begin preliminary work.

Minutes were approved from the June 20 regular meeting of the board of directors as well as the August 1 regular meeting regarding policy and operational performance. Minutes were also approved from the May 12 regular meeting of the medical staff.
