Rooks County Health Center will expand their existing rural Critical Access Hospital located Plainville, Kansas – the only hospital in the county.
The Project entails the addition of a permanent 2,800 square foot MRI and Nuclear Medicine facility to bring an MRI and Nuclear Medicine functions in-house versus utilizing a mobile unit. The Project also includes the construction of a dedicated rehabilitation center needed to both consolidate and integrate existing therapy programs to provide a patient treatment layout that is anticipated to provide greater efficiency and reduce risks associated with contagious disease to which the current physical plan allows (the “Project”). The rehabilitation center will support the hospital in the areas of physical, occupational, respiratory and speech therapy.
The Project will address operational inefficiencies and shortfalls as caused by the dependency on a mobile MRI unit, as well as responding to capacity concerns related to meeting expanding needs of clinical patients and the impact to underlying operational costs of operational inefficiencies driven by the current space.
