Bankruptcy Court Approves Buyer for West Virginia Hospital

A federal bankruptcy court has approved a health care facility’s $3.7 million bid for most assets of the only hospital in a southern West Virginia county that planned to close this month. Williamson (W.Va.) Health and Wellness said in a statement Wednesday that the court accepted its proposal for Williamson Memorial Hospital in Mingo County. Williamson Health and Wellness offers services including adult and pediatric medicine, behavioral health, dental, podiatry and telemedicine. The hospital said this week it would close sometime this month because all potential buyers were health care providers whose attention was turned toward preparing their own facilities for patients of the new coronavirus. The hospital had gone into bankruptcy proceedings in February and obtained a loan to fund operations until the business could be sold. The idea was to stay open until a sale closed in early April.
