The Southeast Alabama Medical Center is not on the auction block. That word comes from Houston County Commission Chairman Mark Culver.
The unfounded rumor is apparently rooted in the District One Houston County Commission race.
Culver says some candidates are claiming the hospital will be sold unless they are elected. But, Culver says the hospital is not for sale.
The Southeast Alabama Medical Center has been serving the Tri-States area since 1957 and is currently one of the largest not-for-profit hospitals in Alabama.
