CHEROKEE VILLAGE, AR - Officials are continuing with their efforts to re-open the Sharp County hospital. The facility serves many of the retired people in Cherokee Village, and officials are working to find a company that will re-open the 40-bed hospital.
The facility closed last week under pressure from state and federal authorities.
Three companies are expressing interest about running the hospital.
