Amarillo, TX - A hospital in Guymon which has been experiencing financial hardship over the past year is about to receive some help.
A hospital in Amarillo is about to provide some much needed help to the Memorial Hospital of Texas County.
"For almost a year now hospital employees, doctors, administrators and county commissioners have worked to keep Memorial Hospital of Texas County open.
"We're holding our own right now," said Raymond Holbert who is the Board Chairman of the Board of Control of the Memorial Hospital of Texas County.
"In the last year, it's been a struggle," Ted Keeling who is the Chairman of the Board of the County Commissioners said.
"After the Hospital Board fired it's CEO last May following the discovery that financial information was being kept from them, it's been a challenge to keep the hospital open.
"The County has had to assist in payroll, a few areas, those funds are limited," said Keeling.
"Making cuts, which we had to make a lot of cuts, and pinching pennies to the point to where they have kept us open," Holbert said.
But Northwest Texas Hospital in Amarillo will soon partner with Memorial Hospital of Texas County to provide assistance.
