• Recovery Act-funded project will create 100 jobs
• ‘This project has been years in the making’
Plans for a new 17,000-square foot outpatient center at Corcoran District Hospital have gotten a $12 million boost, the funds coming from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
The loan will allow the hospital to provide ambulatory surgery and imaging services to the 14,000 residents across the Kings County community. Construction of the new center will create 100 jobs for the region.
“This project has been years in the making and I am proud that our efforts have paid off,” says Rep. Jim Costa, D-Fresno. “Construction of the new center will create jobs and improve access to health care for Kings County families. This funding is a major win for the Kings County community.”
The Corcoran District Hospital is an acute care hospital located in the southern portion of Kings County.
“The completed health care facility will improve access to high quality services in a county that is largely indigent and rural,” says Corcoran Hospital CEO John Brenn.
