PMC Schedules Town Hall Meetings on May Bond Issue

Prowers Medical Center has begun the planning phase for a new 13,000 sq. ft. Outpatient Rehabilitation Center to be constructed on the hospital campus at 401 Kendall Drive in Lamar, CO.  Constructing the new center will vacate 2,000 sq. ft. of space in the Lamar Medical Clinic allowing for a remodeling project that will provide additional space for primary patient care and new healthcare providers. 

In conformance with applicable laws associated with the hospital being established as a Hospital District known as Prowers County Hospital District, Prowers and Baca Counties, Colorado we are prohibited from taking on long-term debt for capital development projects without prior voter approval. 

The hospital is seeking approval of the voters of Prowers County for a five million dollar capital improvement bond to construct the new Outpatient Rehabilitation Center.  The Bond issue will be included on the ballot set for the regular hospital election scheduled for May 8th. 

Throughout the month of April, a series of public meetings have been scheduled to explain the Bond issue to area voters to seek their input and answer any questions related to this project.  The following schedule has been coordinated to conduct these public meetings:
