I heard that it did sell. Seems like a group from Chicago purchased it, not anyone locally.

Not many of the nearby residents utilized that hospital . Many drove past to go to Clark, Floyd or Louisville. And for good reasons.

Did you know that the residents futon the assisted living facility as well as the community utilize this hospital for lab testing, MRI's etc.?
This hospital has been taking care of people for many years! No they do not conduct heart transplants.... But the locals NEED this hospital ... Be supportive in keeping it open!

I agree Grammy.
With all the outpatient urgent care centers and diagnostic imaging centers available, they need to offer higher level of care. Not all MRI machines, CT machines, etc offer the same level of quality.
You have hospitals offering way more services that are struggling to stay afloat i.e. CMH/FMH.
Last I read, they were going to offer more telemedicine and remote diagnostic services.

And yes becoming a higher tech facility, I do agree would be an ideal goal!
But again, the residents in that area do need this facility. It's a long drive to Clark, Floyd or Louisville hospitals ... They use to stat flight from this hospital to Louisville facilities

St. Catherine's was a God-send to me & my mother! Wellpoint kicked us to the curb (and it was frightfully cold that night!) Mom was in advanced Alzheimer's and a victim of domestic abuse. Hubs went to jail (with the dang insurance card!) but I needed a safe place for Mom. My home with steep stairs was not doable. Even though I told Wellpoint that I would be responsible for the bill, they said no. St. Catherine accepted her and gave me a recommendation on an Alzheimer unit (Green Valley) and refused to allow hub to visit without supervision. I will always be indebted to them. They were kind, caring and compassionate.
I don't know about the ER or surgeries, but on a very frigid night, they gave my mom a safe landing spot and took care of her as the treasure she was.
