Hospital leaders in Cheboygan have released a few more details on the future of medical care and staffing at Cheboygan Memorial Hospital. A sale to Flint-based McLaren Health Care is expected to be finalized Tuesday.
In a press release, hospital leaders say CMH will cease to exist April 3rd. They say "a number of health care services" will be provided at the former CMH site, overseen by Petoskey's hospital, which was renamed McLaren-Northern Michigan earlier this year.
Staffing decisions, they say, will be made over the next few days.
"While our overall goal has always been to secure health care for Cheboygan, we are disappointed that it also means that we have to say good-bye to many of our employees," CMH CEO Shari Schult was quoted in the release.
The hospital operated at a seven million dollar loss last year. The area's largest employer, it had almost 400 workers. It filed for bankruptcy March 1st.
