  3.  In a county of the first classification, any balance of the proceeds from the sale of the county hospital remaining after all indebtedness incurred in connection with the hospital is paid shall be placed to the credit of the general fund of the county.  In a county of the second, third or fourth classification:

  (1)  Any balance of the proceeds from the sale of the county hospital pursuant to subsection 2 of this section shall be used to provide health care services in the county; and

  (2)  Assets donated to a county hospital pursuant to section 205.290 shall be used to provide health care services in the county, except as otherwise prescribed by the terms of the deed, gift, devise or bequest.
