New ownership puts a local Eufaula hospital in the hands of citizens.
Documents were signed changing ownership of the hospital from a private corporation to the city of Eufaula and Barbour County.
Southeast Alabama Medical Center helped make the transition possible.
The new ownership will allow Eufaula residents to have continued medical service in their area.
“This is great news for the Wiregrass because it provides access to the Southeast Alabama Medical Center physicians and it’s just wonderful for everyone involved,” said Rick Smith of PR SAMC VP Marketing
Lakeview Hospital has changed ownership more than 13 times in the last 12 years.
