Congress Appropriates $148,755 For SCMH

Scotland County Memorial Hospital CEO Marcia Dial says the monies are the first step in an anticipated $2.7 million project at the Memphis facility.

Scotland County Memorial Hospital will receive nearly $150,000 in federal funds courtesy of the new Omnibus Appropriations Bill recently passed by the United States Congress and awaiting signing by President Bush.

On December 2nd, U.S. Congressman Kenny Hulshof announced that SCMH will receive $148,755 in federal funds for service and equipment upgrades.

SCMH is often the only option for saving lives throughout the region, so it is essential that it be able to provide critical emergency services to all of its patrons, said Hulshof. Im pleased that my colleagues have recognized the importance of enhancing medical services available to rural communities like the ones served by SCMH.

Scotland County Memorial Hospital is the only hospital in a 1,500 square mile area. The area it serves is an aging population that ranks well above state averages for the percentage of population over the age of 65 Hulshof noted. For nearly all of these residents, SCMH is their sole source of quality health care.

Thanks go to Congressman Hulshof and Senators Bond and Talent who have demonstrated their priority to provide Missouri with the best representation and constituent service possible, said SCMH CEOMarcia Dial. These monies will be utilized for the initial phase of an anticipated $2.7 million extended project plan. The proposed project will provide SCMH with the technology and facilities to move into the next arena of delivering essential obstetrical and emergency trauma service.
