Hospital takeover plan gets cool reception

The Covington County Hospital board of trustees is facing a possible roadblock in its plans to hire an outside company to oversee the medical facility and its yet-to-be-opened nursing home.

7 ON YOUR SIDE has learned the supervisors have presented a resolution to the hospital trustees indicating mixed emotions about the board's likely selection of Dry Creek Management Company to oversee the daily operations of the facilities.

Supervisor Arthur Keyes says it's not that the board doesn't approve of Dry Creek but that whatever choice is made county officials want it to be the best for both medical facilities.

The boards meet again on Monday.
