The building costs have risen since the election in 1962. We need $40,000 to completely fur- nish the hospital and place an X-ray machine in the building. In order to get and keep a doctor or doctors, the hospital must be equipped completely. The present building doesn't ~lnclude surgical or obstetrics wards. The people in this area aren't going to be satisfied with just a convalescent hospi- tal. The $40,000 will only add the necessary equipment. There are many other items that the hospital will need. Any excess of over $40 000 can be used for additional equip- ment or for a surgical wing, which will need to be added later. This would be in a se- parate structure, immediately adjacent to the Convalescent Hospital. R v. Rose introduced the ounty commissioners: Neai Harris, Burr Oak, Vic Tullar, Jewell, and Ray Dietz, Man- kato. Too, he presented to the group the hospital board and the attorney for the board, They are: Tom Miles, Jeweli, acting chairman, while Chair- man Kenneth Wheat is away from the county on a trip; Harry Swope, Mankato, secre- tary; Chas.

At a later date, if a.need is present and the state board approves it, the hospital could be expanded to 41, with no extra expense, except the addition of beds, which would convert single rooms into dou~ bles. The Jewell County build ing is exactly like the Ottawa County Convalescent Hospital at Minneapolis, with a few mi- nor improvements, wtflch ex- perience at Minneapolis have shown should be made. The Minneapolis facility has been licensed as a hospital. Origin* ally, ten beds were set off in a wing for acute medical care. Because of need, this has since been increased. In the medical wing, Blue Cross and Blue Shield and other hospital in. surance are good. Convales-~ cent care doesn't qualify forl hospital insurance in any hos- pital. At first, they plan to have 10 medical beds in the Jewell County facility. This can be increased as needed. It can be assumed that the Jewell County facility will be licensed as a hospital, provid- ing we have a medical doctor on the staff. This is a must for hospital accreditation. O. H. Wagner explained the physical make-up of the hos. pitai. He has been through the Minneapolis facility and was with Harry Swops, hosplta! board member, in Kansas City for several hours listening to the state and federal officials go over the plans for this hos- pital. It is modern in every detail. The x-ray room has been leaded and will be ready for Use the minute an x-ray machine is installed. This ma- chine must be purchased with donated money. There is an examination room and an emergency room. In an emer- gency, surgery could be done here but no provisions are made for planned surgery. The medical rooms will have oxy- gen available. All the rooms will be equipped, comparable to any hospital in the state. There will be a lobby and vis- itors' room with reading and recreation facilities. Ceramic equipment by approximately April 1, 1967. Therefore the drive needs to be completed by that date. The government has $220,000 of matched.fundaL available for Jewels County, The county voted $ 0,000 but necessary expenses have to be paid from that amount. TOO, there are some things in the hospital, which the federel government won't match. The donations will be used, where necessary to get matching funds and make certain we get the whole $220,000 from the government. In order to be certain that the donation is tax exempt, the checks should be written to the Jewell County Hospital to the Mankato Endowment Left to dsht: Rev. Dun Rose, Mrs. Merle Blow, Jon Mmhu u, Mrs. Lyle RIshtmeier, Father James Hoover, and Ray Elkwort tile is being used. There will be handrails in the corridors and baths. According to Mr. Wagner, everyone will be ex- tremely proud of the building when it is finished and they see exactly what they are get- ting. Mr. Wagner mentioned that the county had done gradin~l on the site that would have cost several thousand dollars. The site was donated by Mr, and Mrs. J. C. LeBow. At Minneapnlis the county pur- chased a site, which is much smaller, and paid $10,000. The city of Mankato in makin~l utilities available at the site will have an expense of ap- proximately $55,000. Through the cooperation of a lot of citizens and the raising of the $40,000 to finish equip. ping the hospital, the original building will be constructed and equipped, The delay in hospital construction, caused by the court case, raised costs thousands of dollars. The county hospital board has stated that a plaque will be placed in the lobby of the hospital, which will contain the names 'of everyone who con- tributes $50.00 or more, TOO, a plaque will be placed over the door of a room, designat- ing the donor of the equipment in that room. To equip a sin- gle room, it will take a dana- tion of $750. To em~p a dou- hie room. the donation will need to be $12~0. Appropriate recognition will be given to anyone who contrib.tes $750 or more and the money is used in the x-ray room or to rnizh some other expensive piece of eemlnment. In Jewell County Record each week, an "Honor Roll" list of donoi's will be printed, H the person gives $750 or more, the name will be listed in that category. Below that figure, no amount will be llst- ed. The complete I/st ,will be printed throughout the drive, with the new names added each week.
