CHEBOYGAN, Mich. (AP) -- Cheboygan Memorial Hospital says it's being forced to shut down after a proposed sale of the facility to Flint-based McLaren Health Care Corp. was blocked.
The Cheboygan Daily Tribune reports the sale was expected to wrap up Tuesday but came to a halt late Monday.
The hospital's Chief Executive Officer Shari Schult says the facility's emergency room will be closed and arrangements made to divert ambulances to other hospitals. She says in a statement that other services will be closed, including outpatient clinics, laboratories and rehabilitation.
Cheboygan Memorial Hospital is the largest employer in Cheboygan County, with a staff of about 400.
The hospital earlier announced it was filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after losing more than $7 million last year. A federal judge earlier approved the sale. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
