Grant would help uninsured

The governing board of Hospital District No. 1 of Mohave County will discuss using $130,000 to meet the matching funds requirements of federal grant.

The Disproportionate Share Fund provides hospitals with funds from the federal government to cover the cost of treating patients who do not have insurance or whose Medicaid coverage don't cover the full cost of treatment, Kingman Regional Medical Center CEO Brian Turney said.

The hospital is asking for $130,000 from the district in order to get a $390,000 match from the federal government.

The board will also discuss its regular finance report and receive an update on projects for the hospital.

The governing board district covers all of Mohave County except Lake Havasu City, Bullhead City and the area north of the Grand Canyon. The board leases Kingman Regional Medical Center to Kingman Hospital, Inc., a non-profit organization that operates the hospital.

The district purchases equipment and property for the hospital.

The board meets at 4 p.m. today at the Kingman Regional Medical Center Board Room, 3269 Stockton Hill Road.
