This article reports that due to the Federal Housing Administration's Section 242 hospital insurance program, Shoshone Medical Center, a small 15-bed hospital in Kellogg, Idaho, will finally have access to the capital markets and begin issuing debt sometime in mid-July 2003. The Housing and Urban Development's willingness to issue its mortgage insurance policy on behalf of this new hospital class have now opened the tax-exempt capital markets to these small facilities.
