Crittenden voters pass measure to save hospital

Memphis Business Journal, June 26, 2014

Crittenden Regional Hospital in West Memphis has been saved by the people of Crittenden County. According to the latest results, county voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved a one-cent sales tax that will generate $30 million for the hospital over five years and keep the facility from shutting down. The measure was passed by a vote of 3,962 for versus 661 against — an 86 percent approval rate. "We are deeply grateful for the outcome of yesterday's election and the overwhelming community support for Crittenden Regional Hospital," says Gene Cashman, Crittenden Regional CEO. "Over the last few weeks, the CRH staff, physicians and I have all been inspired by so many expressions of support and appreciation from patients, families and the community."
