Small Michigan hospital sued by state threatens to close

Detroit Free Press, December 21, 2007
Schoolcraft Memorial Hospital, a 25-bed facility in Manistique, MI, says it may close because of a dispute with the state over how long it allows some patients recovering from serious illness to stay. The hospital has filed a federal lawsuit against the Michigan Department of Community Health, as the department was fining the hospital $500,000 for violating state regulations.
