CCMC Opens
Clinic in Clyde
Clay County Medical Center and Clyde
Family Physicians opened a new comprehensive medical clinic in Clyde early
this year. The 4,400-square-foot building
includes six exam rooms, a large procedure
room, an in-house lab, a nurse's station and
a large waiting area. The new clinic replaces
the former Clyde facility.
Clyde Family Physicians is open five days
a week and is served by five medical providers. The project was developed to meet the
needs of patients and team members who
needed a larger clinic that was fully accessible for people with mobility issues.
Part of the million-dollar project
included a $150,000 capital campaign to
pay for furnishings, fixtures and equipment
that was coordinated by the Clay County
Hospital Foundation.
Clay County Medical Center now turns
its attention to Riley, where it will build a
similar clinic for Riley Family Physicians
adjacent to the new Dollar General on
Highway 24.

Clay County Medical Center CEO Austin
Gillard cut the ribbon on a new clinic for
Clyde Family Physicians in January.

Osborne County
Residents Celebrate
New Hospital,
Health Clinic

Members of the Osborne American Legion raised the
fl ag for the first time in front of the community's new
hospital at its open house in March.

Osborne County Memorial
Hospital and Rural Health
Clinic welcomed the public to
the grand opening for its new
$18.7 million facility in March.
The hospital and primary
care clinic are housed within
the same 40,000-square-foot
facility on the north side
of Osborne.
The new hospital can
accommodate up to
16 patients and offers a
surgical suite and two-room
emergency department, plus
diagnostic support areas and
rehabilitation therapy space.
Cardiac rehabilitation and
pulmonary rehabilitation will
be offered as new services at
the hospital. Additional space
is dedicated for outpatient
clinics for visiting specialty
providers. The Rural Health
Clinic offers eight patient
exam rooms.

The entire project was
made possible when Osborne
County voters made permanent a county sales tax
supporting the hospital and
approved a property tax
increase to support new construction in November 2017.
Groundbreaking took
place in July 2018. The project was necessary to replace
a facility that had become
antiquated after 60 years of
service to the community.
"The Osborne County
community has been behind
this project from the beginning," says Marianna Harris,
CEO of Osborne County
Memorial Hospital. "The
opening of this wonderful
facility will allow us to recruit
and retain staff and ensure
healthcare services are available here for a long time
going forward."
