Although Hopkins County Memorial Hospital Board set a called meeting for noon Monday, April 4, hoping to finalize the proposed partnership with CHRISTUS , they will meet again next Monday, April 11 with the same hope. In an executive meeting early last week, the local board addressed 11 questions to CHRISTUS. During a meeting last Thursday, nine of those 11 questions were answered but two remain (see story here). CHRISTUS had not responded to the two questions remaining questions Monday.
Memorial Chief Administrator Michael McAndrew remains optimistic that those questions will be answered and the partnership between the local hospital and CHRISTUS will be ratified.
