- to establish, acquire, construct, reconstruct, enlarge, operate and maintain hospitals and hospital facilities;
- to grant aid for the establishment, acquisition, reconstruction, enlargement, operation and maintenance of hospitals and hospital facilities;
- to assume obligations of any member municipality, or any improvement district not within the definition of "municipality," or any hospital corporation with respect to the repayment of money borrowed and provided for the financing of hospital projects and interest on it;
- to reimburse a municipality, improvement district or hospital corporation for money provided for financing hospital projects that were raised or obtained other than by borrowing
