12 I The Lovell Chronicle I August 16, 2012 Local hospital districts awarded grants BY JENNIFER BUTLER Wyoming Secretary of State and State Loan and Investment Board member Max Maxfield was impressed by the dedication and effort that was presented by the South Big Horn County Hos- pital Board and community members in their efforts to obtain grant funding from the SLIB last week. Board Chairman Diana Elliot, hospital administra- tor Jackie Claudson, Dr. Dusty Hill, Big Horn County Commissioners Keith Grant and Jerry Ewen and grants writer Linda Harp were all in attendance. On behalf of the hospital, Harp and Grant lobbied for the grant approval the day before the hearing. After several attempts and grant applications sub- mitted to the SLIB board, the South Big Horn Hospital District was finally award- ed a $2 million grant that will be used for the renova- tion and reconstruction of the emergency room, me- chanical room and hospital. Claudson, in an interview this week, said they were also approved for the U.S. Department of Agriculture loan for $2.9 million and re- ceived a Big Horn County Consensus Block Grant for $150,000. The hospital dis- trict also funded $1 million to the project. Maxfield said that the hospital project was not recommended to receive the grant, but Hill and the group made commanding arguments to fund the proj- ect. He added the hospital's other contributions and funding helped persuade the board. Maxfield said Representative Elaine Har- vey also had been a strong advocate for this project. Claudson said Hill was instrumental in letting the board know what the com- munity needed in regards to health care. The next step will be for the hospital to begin work- ing on plans with the archi- tect group, Plan One Archi- tects, out of Cody. Claudson said the plan is to first build the new portions of the hos- pital, and demolition would occur after completion. Harp said, "We are thrilled that we are going to have a new hospital. It is a great project, and it will greatly benefit the commu- nity." North Big Horn Hospi- tal was awarded a planning grant from the SLIB board in the amount of $147,459. The grant is for planning and design of an addition to the medical clinic in Lovell. Maxfield said he sees the need for the upgrade in the North Big Horn Hospi- tal. He has been at the fa- cility and has been follow- ing the project, and plans to continue following the prog- ress.
