Prospective buyer approaches supervisors about hospital
Published: April 26,2013
NATCHEZ — Less than five years after Adams County failed to find a buyer for county-owned Natchez Regional Medical Center, at least one interested buyer recently emerged.
The Natchez Democrat reports the potential buyer approached several Adams County supervisors.
Supervisor Mike Lazarus says it’s too early to tell what will come from the inquiry, but that it wasn’t the first time the county has been approached.
Lazarus says selling the hospital could be a windfall for the county.
In addition to the potential sales price, if the buyer were a for-profit company, the property would return the tax rolls and generate a significant amount of annual property tax.
Natchez Regional was put up for sale in late 2008 after the hospital experienced financial problems that ultimately led to its 2009 bankruptcy filing.
