Sheriff takes control of Central Texas hospital as precaution against chain's owner
In a highly unusual move, the Milam County Sheriff's Department has taken control of Central Texas Hospital in Cameron, heeding a court order that aims to prevent the facility's owner from altering, hiding or destroying medical records and other property. A temporary injunction was sought by the hospital's building landlord, which cited "the recent conduct of defendant Dr. Tariq Mahmood in other situations" and the need to avoid "real potential consequences" to the community. The sheriff earlier shuttered the hospital's main operations, leaving only the emergency room open.
