Scott County Hospital deal falls through

Scott County Hospital deal falls through

Posted:

ONEIDA (WATE) - A bid to reopen the Scott County Hospital in Oneida has failed.

Buyer SM Promen was unable to come up with the financing to purchase the hospital by the Feb. 28 deadline.

The initial deadline was Jan. 31, but commissioners voted earlier this month to extend the deadline to Feb. 28.

Despite the extension, the deal still fell through.

County officials are planning a meeting on Monday, March 4 to discuss how to proceed in light of the latest setback.

The hospital, once called St. Mary's Hospital of Scott County, closed last May after the county's contract with former operator HMA ran out and was not renewed.
