Whitney hospital closes after long battle to survive

WHITNEY, TX (KXXV) - After a long battle to keep the Lake Whitney Medical Center open, the Whitney Hospital Authority Board of Directors chose to close it down.

More than 30 people have lost their jobs as a result.

Former hospital administrator Francine Sanderson says the clinic and home health are still open, but the hospital is closed.

Indicted hospital owner, Tariq Mahmood, has kept the hospital from being sold. His legal battles have frozen up Medicare and Medicaid for potential buyers.
