Achieving Our Campaign Goal

The total cost to realize this project is $8.2 million, based on estimates from architects and engineers. The hospital expansion will be funded with a variety of public and private sources. We proudly report that have achieved three-quarters of our goal through both private and public gifts.
In January 2021, Pocahontas Memorial Hospital received a $5.7 million Rural Development renovation loan from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA.) Additionally, Joe and Peg donated $1 million to the campaign as a gift for the stellar medical care Peg received during a visit. Now, we need your help to raise $1.5 million to complete this campaign. We must raise $1.5 million to complete reach our project total by June 2022.
