After months of struggling to pay bills and hospital employees, the Horton Hospital confirmed that they will be closing for good at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday.
KSNT News first reported that Horton Hospital was having fianancial problems back in February when a nurse revealed employees weren’t being paid.
Then on Monday, city officials confirmed that the hospital would probably be closing sometime this week.
On Tuesday, hospital staff walked out and locked the doors for the last time. However one hospital employee told KSNT News that despite the hospital closing, the pharmacy inside called Kex RX will remain open.
He also said the Attorney General’s office and Kansas Department of Health and Environment had been there on Tuesday checking in on the situation.
