Washington, DC's United Medical Center needs money to stay open

Washington Post, January 13, 2010

Washington, DC-based United Medical Center is struggling to pay its bills and might need a bailout to stay open, according to DC Council members. The situation at the hospital is so dire that city leaders have begun looking for a new owner for the 184-bed facility. Council members told the Washington Post the hospital has an operating deficit of as much as $20 million, and a bank recently denied its request for a $5 million line of credit.
