      Iowa Governor signs legislation to aid Keokuk Area Hospital

      Gov. Branstad is expected to stop by the Keokuk Area Hospital to sign the reenactment of HF 2460.

      Iowa Governor Terry Branstad will make his way to Keokuk Friday.

      He's expected to stop by the Keokuk Area Hospital to sign the reenactment of HF 2460.

      The legislation provides a loan to the hospital for up to 5 million.

      The facility has faced financial hardships in the past few years that officials say is linked to the lack of Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement.

      The ceremony starts at 2:30 p.m.
