Florida hospital phasing out daily operations
South Florida Sun-Sentinel, April 1, 2008
Now that its sale to Holy Cross Hospital has been finalized, Oakland Park, FL-based North Ridge Medical Center is phasing out daily operations. All emergency rescue units already are currently being redirected from to Holy Cross, which is about 2 miles away from the North Ridge Campus. Holy Cross purchased the 332-bed hospital from Tenet Healthcare Corp. for about $20 million. North Ridge is scheduled to be empty by the end of July 2008, but current and scheduled patients will still be treated there.
