Aliquippa, PA, hospital shuts down abruptly

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, December 15, 2008

After notifitying the state Health Department that it would close immediately, Aliquippa, PA's Commonwealth Medical Center's operating license was revoked. The closure comes a week after the 96-bed facility filed for bankruptcy. The state last month forced the hospital to stop accepting new patients because it violated licensing standards and was short on essential supplies and equipment. The hospital did not meet the state's requirements to lift the ban by Dec. 1.
