Tilden, NE city council votes to allow local hospital to cease in-patient services


A Siouxland community is facing the reality of losing emergency health care services this summer.

The Tilden, Nebraska, City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to give the city-owned Tilden Community Hospital permission to cease in-patient and emergency services effective July 1st.

Hospital officials says with lower patient volume it's financially impossible to continue to provide ER and in-patient services at their facility.

They say they plan to begin negotiations with Faith Regional Health Services, in Norfolk, so the Tilden Hospital may still provide outpatient and clinical services.

The move will mean the loss of 35 jobs.
