From Modern Healthcare:
The sole hospital in Wharton, Texas, just south of Houston, has closed. The Gulf Coast Medical Center is directing residents to either El Campo Memorial or OakBend Medical Center, which is more than a half-hour away.
Gulf Coast ended most of its services months ago but was still operating as a walk-in emergency center, according to a local newspaper. Wharton has a population of about 8,700.
