Hoeven: USDA Approves Grant of $112,000 for Heart of America Medical Center Renovation

WASHINGTON — Senator John Hoeven, who serves on the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee and Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee, today announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Rural Development has awarded a grant of $112,000 to the Heart of America Medical Center in Rugby. The funds will be used to renovate an unused area of the critical access hospital to a cancer care center.

“The Heart of America Medical Center provides healthcare services to more than 13,000 people in the Rugby area,” Hoeven said. “Today’s grant will go towards renovating an unused part of the facility into a cancer care center, which will help to make sure that community residents fighting cancer have better access to the services they need.”

The Heart of America Medical Center was founded in 1910 and is sustained by the Good Samaritan Hospital Association, a non-profit, non-denominational organization supported by 27 area member churches.
