Texas hospital to close ER

From Becker’s:

Baptist Hospitals of Southeast Texas, Orange Campus will discontinue emergency services on Jan. 12, according to The Examiner.

In a release issued to The Examiner, Baptist said it is ceasing emergency services because the physician group staffing the emergency room terminated its agreement to provide services. Other factors, including reductions in reimbursement and the influx of freestanding emergency room competitors, also contributed to the decision to close the ER.
