Texas hospital to close Nov. 16, affecting 138 employees

Listen

Financially troubled Bowie (Texas) Memorial Hospital will officially shut down Nov. 16, according to a KFDX report.

The hospital board had hoped to save Bowie Memorial through the creation of a new hospital district, but the measure was nixed Nov. 3 when 53 percent of voters turned down the tax district. Without the district and the property tax revenue it would bring, the Bowie Memorial board began planning for the facility to shut down and met Monday to put a closing process in place.

Bowie Memorial's closure will affect 138 hospital employees and an additional 336 jobs within the community, according to the report.
