Supervisors looking for consultant to assist in sale of hospital
Published: June 27,2012
OKTIBBEHA COUNTY — Supervisors are seeking proposals from consulting companies to evaluate Oktibbeha County Hospital, one of the steps required in a sale of the county-owned medical center.
This week’s decision only authorizes advertisements to seek such proposals and does not approve the analysis itself. Such an analysis would look at the financial impact of leasing or selling the hospital.
The move is not unusual.
Grenada County supervisors have hired a Jackson law firm to offer advice on the possibility of selling or leasing the publicly owned Grenada Lake Memorial Hospital in Grenada.
Lowndes and Lafayette counties have sold their hospitals in the last five years.
Supervisors have scheduled a July 9 educational session with a consultant on questions about the potential of expanded health care in Oktibbeha County.
