Hospital Officials Set Date Of Purchase

Beaufort County's hospital board of trustees and commissioners announced today that the purchase of the Beaufort Regional Heath System by University Health Systems should be completed in September 2011.

Hospital officials announced the date in a closed door session Wednesday afternoon.

In a statement officials say, "The health care industry is one of our country's most highly regulated areas and a transaction of this type is very complex. All parties are working diligently to complete the requirements of the transaction and regret that aspects of the transaction must, of necessity, take time."

    I do hope something is put into motion soon. These closed door meetings keep on coming. I'm ready to see some more actual progress with the transition. The community is ready to see it as well, folks let's not forget that it's not a done deal until there's actual proof.
