Published: Feb. 13, 2021

Two health care facilities in Council Bluffs recently received sizable grants from the Iowa West Foundation and the Pottawattamie County Community Foundation in an effort to mitigate issues stemming from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital and CHI Health Mercy Council Bluffs were each awarded $75,000 through the Southwest Iowa COVID-19 Response Fund that was jump-started last year shortly after the pandemic reached Iowa.

Both facilities applied for funding last year and received a comparable gift through the fund that assisted with immediate facility coronavirus needs, said Donna Dostal, president and CEO of the Pottawattamie County Community Foundation.
