JCHC Board OKs Purchase of Adjacent Property

The Johnson County Healthcare Center's Board of Trustees, at their meeting Wednesday evening, approved the purchase of an adjacent property to the healthcare center.

The property, identified as the “Firnekas Property” on North DeSmet Avenue, has been in the crosshairs of the healthcare center for a number of years, and the owners now appear ready to sell the property to the hospital.

Hospital Administrator Sandy Ward asked the board for approval to purchase the property for $100,000, which they did approve.

The JCHC will take possession of the property July 1st, and is expected to demolish the buildings currently on the property.
