New Construction Project

The New Construction Project consists of construction of a new Critical Access Hospital and adjoining Rural Health Clinic. The hospital will consist of 16 dual purpose patient beds, surgical suite, two emergency bays, specialty clinic area, diagnostic support areas, rehabilitation therapy, business and admitting areas and the Rural Health Clinic with 8 exam rooms. The overall total square footage for the new facility is approximately 40,000 square feet.

The new facility will be constructed in the High Plains Addition in the City of Osborne. The address is 237 West Harrison Street. These lots were gifted to OCMH by the city of Osborne.

The total project completion cost will be no more than $18,735,000.00.  At full bonding of $18,735,000.00 the total mill levy will be 9.75.  The general obligation bonds will be purchased by USDA for the funding of the loan.  To see how this will affect your property tax please see the TAX CALCULATOR at the bottom of the page.

  • Hutton Construction, also located in Wichita, was selected as the construction management partner. They will be active participants from pre-funding all the way through design and construction processes.

  • Lastly, the Kansas Community Service Contribution Tax Credit Program (CSP) approved the change of the scope of the project to the new construction allowing us to utilize these funds for the project as well.
