Public hearing to be held to discuss sale of Delta hospital

GREENWOOD — A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 13 to hear from the public on the possible sale of Greenwood Leflore Hospital.

The Greenwood Commonwealth reports the hearing will begin at 5 p.m. at the Leflore County Civic Center in Greenwood.

The hospital is jointly owned by Greenwood and Leflore County and is the area’s largest employer.

It has made modest profits in recent years, but changes in the health care law and sales of hospitals in other Mississippi communities have prompted consideration of a sale.

A 10-member committee is writing a request for proposals that spells out stipulations of a possible sale.
