KVH Seeks Approval Of Bond Measure

Klickitat Valley Health is asking voters in Public Hospital District #1 of Klickitat County to approve a $14.3 million bond measure to expand the facility in Goldendale.  A $20 million bond measure was narrowly defeated in 2019, and KVH Chief Executive Officer Leslie Hiebert says they listened to community input to narrow the project to focus on adding 15 long-term care beds, establishing new and expanded acute care space, and creating new operating rooms.  The proposed tax levy is 67 cents per $1,000 of assessed property value.  KVH’s current 20 year bond that expires in 2021 was passed at a rate of $1.29 per $1,000, but it has over time been reduced to 44 cents per $1,000 thanks to increases in assessed property values around the hospital district.
