The State of Missouri has awarded 11 rural hospitals grants totaling $262,000 to increase broadband speed to better support telemedicine initiatives.

Most of the hospitals received around $25,000, with matching funds generally about $5,000. One hospital will match a $25,000 grant with up to $30,000 in other funds. Missouri Southern Healthcare, which includes a 50-bed hospital and six clinics, provided 5,000 in matching funds for a $25,000 grant, which will be used to increase broadband speed from 1.5 Mbps to 10 Mbps.
