ACMC now providing care out of its new clinic

Benson’s Affiliated Community Medical Centers (ACMC) is moving into its new building Wednesday (today). The new clinic building is part of a $5 million expansion and renovation of the Swift County-Benson Hospital.
An open house is planned for Oct. 22.
In April 2012, the SCBH board of governors approved the bid of Breitbach Construction of Elrosa for construction of the new clinic on south side of the hospital along McKinney Avenue.  Construction began later that spring with the estimated time of completion the middle of September 2013.
Before construction began on the new clinic, ACMC signed a 20-year lease with the hospital for the space.

Lawsuit claims children at St. Francis were abused by priest in the 1960s

By Reed Anfinson
Publisher, Swift County Monitor-News

Two children who attended St. Francis Xavier Parochial School in Benson are among the at least 20 children that former priest Father David A. Roney is accused of sexually abusing during his career.
The incidents, one involving a boy and one a girl, are alleged to have occurred while he was in Benson between 1963 and 1967. Roney died Jan. 27, 2003.
Monday the law firm of Jeff Anderson and Associates PA conducted a press conference with two women who say Roney abused them while he was a priest in Willmar between 1967 and 1975.
The two, along with a third unidentified person who attended the Catholic school in Benson, are seeking an amount in excess of $50,000 each as well as costs, reasonable attorney’s fees, and other relief “as the court deems just and equitable” from the Diocese of New Ulm. The suit was filed last Friday in Brown County.
