Kearney County residents welcomed a new addition to their hospital Friday--a $10 million addition.
The new wing on the Kearney County Health Services hospital in Minden is 8,600 square feet.
There's also a nearly 8,000 square-foot renovation to the current facility.
"I think it means an awful lot to them," said Fred Meiss, CEO of Kearney County Health Services. "We have a lot of elderly folks in Kearney County and they don't' have to travel. Most of their services they can get here--their basic services."
The new addition includes 10 new in-patient rooms, a new cardiac rehab department and a new waiting room area.
The renovated section also has four new outpatient exam rooms.
