Florida hospital has new management after nearly closing: 3 things to know

Campbellton-Graceville (Fla.) Hospital is under new management, according to a WJHG report.

Last month, the hospital announced it was preparing to suspend all hospital services due to "immediate financial difficulties." However, People's Choice Hospital, an Oak Brook, Ill.-based nonprofit organization that works with hospitals to reform their finances, has stepped in to help.

Here are three things to know about the new management and efforts being made at the hospital.

1. PCH Vice President of Hospital Information Systems Jorge Perez told WJHG that PCH is helping the Florida hospital deal with its debt by negotiating a payment term with the Internal Revenue Service and seeing if some penalties may be reversed.

2. Overall, PCH plans to invest about $2 million into Campbellton-Graceville over the next four to six months.   

3. PCH is already adding new technology, including robots. "We're able to dial in remotely and the doctor's able to make his assessments and do all his follow-ups and review the patient for his care,"Mr. Perez explained, according to the report. PCH is also looking at other devices to install at Campbellton-Graceville, the report notes.
