BISMARCK — U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) announced the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development approved a loan guarantee of $10,894,000 to Towner County Hospital Authority (TCHA).
The funds will be used to construct a 76,000 square foot critical access hospital and nursing home for TCHA in Cando. The replacement project will consist of a 10 bed acute care hospital, a 30 bed long term care facility, and a five bed basic care facility. This will bring modern, code compliant inpatient and outpatient care spaces, with dramatic improvements in inpatient care, appropriate space for the emergency department and diagnostic imaging, as well as improving other patient care and support areas, in particular, physical therapy, laboratory, ambulatory surgery, and central sterile.
