Glenn Medical Center gets the green light on a loan to build a new hospital.
A U.S. Department of Agriculture "Rural Development Loan" has been approved for $14.5 million. A new state of the art facility has been in the works for years, but construction isn't likely to start for at least two years. Glenn Medical Center is located in Willows and is the only hospital in the county.
Hospital officials still have to develop a work plan and get local and state approval before moving forward with the project.
