Cherokee Village Hospital Now Completely Shutdown

DECEMBER 3, 2004 - Posted at 8:03 a.m. CST

 

CHEROKEE VILLAGE, AR - Cherokee Village, a northeast Arkansas community that is home to many retired and aging people is without a hospital.  Officials say Eastern Ozarks Regional Health System Hospital has closed the facility.

Some hospital departments closed earlier this week.  Now, Sharp County quorum court member Greg Prenger says the entire hospital has closed.  Prenger said that hospital employees were notified of the closing on Thursday.

Prenger says the hospital could re-open and that negotiations are continuing.

Since the partial shutdown on Monday, patients have been referred to Fulton County Hospital at Salem and White River Medical Center at Batesville for in-patient treatment.

The closing comes after the 40-bed hospital shut its lab, emergency room and in-patient services on Monday.
