The Asotin county commission expressed their formal support Monday morning for the hospital's loan application and its plan to expand the Medical Office building in Clarkston. Tri-State officials are applying for a loan from the division of the USDA that focuses on rural development.
"I support this," said Asotin County Commissioner Jim Jeffords. "I'd like to see Tri-State continue to grow."
"It's good that we have a community hospital willing to get involved in the community," said Asotin County Commissioner Jim Fuller.
A representative from Tri-State Memorial Hospital said that this is one of the many steps in the process to secure funding for the renovations.
