CHI, local group discuss Larned Kansas hospital’s future

From Modern Healthcare:

Catholic Health Initiatives, Denver, is negotiating with a local group that wants to run a Kansas hospital that the Roman Catholic system had wanted to close by Sept. 30, the system said. The closure plan was halted by a lawsuit last month filed by the Kansas attorney general’s office. The community group, the Pawnee County Community Health Organization, wants to take over 25-bed St. Joseph Memorial Hospital, Larned, in order to maintain its critical-access designation, which would not be recoverable if the hospital were to close.
