(BETHANY, Mo.) The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Rural Development Missouri State Director Kyle Wilkens helped break ground for a new 76,000 square foot hospital in Bethany, Missouri on Thursday, April 4, 2024. 

“While many rural hospitals throughout the country are closing, here in Missouri we are working with folks like the Harrison County Community Hospital District to keep rural healthcare accessible and even expanding access,” Director Wilkens said. 

“USDA Rural Development strategically invests in areas and projects that oftentimes have limited financing options – so this couldn’t be a better example of what we do,” Director Wilkens stated. 

USDA Rural Development funds will be used to construct the new Harrison County Hospital in Bethany. The new hospital will have a 14-bed acute care and swing-bed unit, there will be 10 private patient rooms, one patient isolation room, and two semi-private rooms. 

The emergency department will have two trauma/isolation rooms, three exam rooms, and triage rooms.
