X-ray vision

Gary Miller (left), an Oregon Trail Electric Consumers Cooperative board member from Grant County, meets with Blue Mountain Hospital CEO Bob Houser to look over the new X-ray equipment, installed recently at the hospital in John Day. The project was supported by a $184,000 Rural Economic Development Loan and Grant program, which provides zero-interest loans to local utilities to aid local projects. In this case, OTEC carries the loan, passing the money on to the hospital for the equipment upgrade. The X-ray machine was needed to replace aging equipment that was lagging behind standards for medical programs. OTEC participated in a similar loan arrangement two years ago, for a project at Malheur Lumber Company. “The OTEC Board of Directors are committed to projects that sustain existing jobs and create new ones,” said Miller.
