Multiple Central Texas Hospitals Closing
News 10 is reporting that multiple Central Texas hospitals and clinics could close down as within the week.
Little River Healthcare, the parent company of Two hospitals in Cameron and Rockdale and three affiliated clinics, told employees in a letter that the hospitals will be closing.
The closing comes from the fact filed for bankruptcy earlier this year.
KWTX said, "In a Worker Adjustment Retraining Notification Act or WARN letter sent to employees, parent company Little River Healthcare announced that because of the failure to find new owners, the facilities will be closed down by Friday. The company filed for bankruptcy in July and then filed last month to liquidate. The move means Rockdale Hospital, Rockdale Family Care Clinic, Rockdale Downtown Medical Clinic, Cameron Hospital and Cameron Clinic will close."
A total number of 298 employees will be laid off due to the closings.
KWTX said, "A Cameron Chamber of Commerce spokesperson confirmed the closing and said it would be very sad to lose the community medical care."
