Charlotte Observer, May 6, 2010
Union County, NC's plan to sell or renegotiate the lease of its hospital is being shelved after a primary election win by three GOP commissioner candidates who oppose the sale. Commissioners Chairwoman Kim Rogers and Vice Chair Tracy Kuehler, part of a board majority exploring a sale, said they will make a motion at the next meeting to basically let the new board handle the issue. The lease with Carolinas HealthCare System to operate Carolinas Medical Center-Union in Monroe runs until 2020. But the county, facing a debt approaching $700 million over the next five years, hired consultants Kaufman Hall to help with a possible sale or renegotiation of the CHS lease.
