Brownsville, PA, hospital surrenders license, closes doors
Brownsville Tri-County Hospital, a long-troubled 40-bed facility in Fayette County, PA, has finally closed. The board of directors surrendered the hospital's operating license to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, which helped transfer the remaining 15 patients to other facilities. The 93-year-old hospital, which had closed once before, has been in tangled bankruptcy proceedings for four years and indicated earlier this month that it couldn't pay its 150 employees.
