HCA has secured the backing of both key boards at Citrus Memorial Hospital in a bid to take control of the health care facility. The Citrus Memorial Hospital Foundation Board voted 7-1 in HCA's favor, following a 4-0 vote by the Citrus Hospital Board, said J.C. Sadler, vice president of marketing and communications for HCA West Florida. The exact nature of the transaction has yet to be determined, according to the Citrus Chronicle. The hospital board wants a lease, while the foundation favors a sale, the Chronicle reported.
