Officials seek assurance on keeping Bucks County, PA, hospital open
Philadelphia Inquirer, July 24, 2009
A group of 35 politicians representing parts of Bucks County, PA, asked the board of Lower Bucks Hospital to sell only to organizations that will promise to maintain the property as a full-service hospital. In a letter, the group said the community "relies heavily" on the hospital for convenient services and that, as the employer of more than 1,000 people, it is a "key component of the local economy."
