PA Medical Center Files for Chapter 11

Margaret Dick Tocknell, for HealthLeaders Media, April 11, 2012

Court Appoints Trustee
Doran explained that because the medical center is “no longer in the position to continue the management” of the facility, it requested that the court appoint a Chapter 11 trustee. William G. Schwab, an attorney from Leighton, was named to that position.


Schwab has several options. He can reorganize the medical center's operation, put it into liquidation, or find a buyer for the facility.

Holli Senior, a spokesperson for the DOH, confirmed that “at this point, the Department of Health has not revoked the license” for Saint Catherine to operate as a healthcare facility. She declined to speculate on future actions.

Efforts to reach a spokesperson for Saint Catherine Medical Center were unsuccessful.
