"The hospital is not closing," Frank Wade, MD, a member of the hospital's board, told MageeNews.com. "We are reorganizing. This is not the end, but a beginning to a stronger future for Magee General Hospital."

In its bankruptcy petition, Magee General Hospital listed its assets as between $1 million and $10 million and listed its liabilities in the same range.
