There will be a special meeting of the governing board of Windom Area Health on Thursday at 12 noon in the large conference room of the hospital.
The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss the proposed funding for the new medical office building. The cost of the building is estimated at $30 million, and the total area of the four-story structure would be 57,000 square feet.
Emily Masters, Chief Human Relations Officer for WAH, recently informed that the proposed cost includes demolition of the current clinic, moving current parking areas for the construction process, building some new parking, and the construction costs of the new clinic.
WAH has a local, seven-member, Governing Board. All Board members volunteer their time to guide the hospital in areas of finance, professional practices, strategic planning, public relations, and service and facility improvement.
According the Masters, more details on the floor plans and also drawings of the proposed structure will soon be released to the public.
WAH plans to bring its proposals for funding and a request for building approval before the Windom city council on Tuesday night, June 20.
