Modernizing Critical Access Hospital Replacement for Kimble Hospital

Seeking to improve the environment of care provided to its residents, Kimble engaged REES to provide modernization of their existing Critical Access Hospital, originally constructed in 1958. In an effort to minimize cost and limit the taxpayer burden to fund the project, REES investigated three potential solutions to accommodate Kimble’s needs. A bond issue passed by the community resulted in full funding for the construction of a 30,500 square foot replacement hospital and 7,300 square foot clinic on a new site, including a Level IV Trauma Emergency Department. In addition to working with hospital staff and administration to create an operationally efficient layout, the team worked with the contractor to explore cost-saving measures to expedite construction.
