(KMZA)--The Nemaha Valley Community Hospital in Seneca has received a $415,000 Congressional Directed Spending grant for their current building expansion project.

U.S. Senator Jerry Moran joined hospital officials Friday in announcing the federal investment.

Moran said the funding will be used to help construct a more than 23,000-square-foot addition to the facility, creating space for a new inpatient care wing, emergency department expansion and radiology suite.

As a senior member of the Labor, Health and Human Services Appropriations Subcommittee, the Kansas Republican was able to help secure the federal funding for the project.

"Rural health care facilities offer a lifeline to Kansans, but often these facilities need assistance to continue growing and expanding to meet patient needs and the needs of the community. The federal investment we celebrated on Friday will assist Nemaha Valley's expansion efforts, ease the pressure to find or raise the funding, and offer increased access to quality care for the Seneca community."
