A nonprofit organization has been formed to obtain federal funding and tax credits for about a third
of the cost of the new $19 million Neshoba County Hospital now under construction.
Officials told the Neshoba Democrat governments and for-profit entities do not qualify for the federal funding being sought by the Neshoba County Hospital Public Improvement Corp.
The new hospital includes a new two-story, 52,000 square foot building adjacent to the existing emergency department.
The new facility will house a new emergency room, a four-bed intensive care unit, 25 state-of-the-art patient rooms, a new radiology department, new surgery suite and a new pharmacy.
The project is expected to be completed in spring of 2013.
