Lights still on at Hillsboro Community Hospital

January 12, 2019 - 2:11 am

The Hillsboro Community Hospital remains open today, after their utility bills have been paid in full, removing a threat by the city to shut off power.   

Just days ago, the city had threatened to shut off power if the hospital didn't pay 30 thousand dollars they owed in utilities. There is currently no risk of the power being turned off.

EmpowerHMS owns the hospital, and is responsible for the late payment.

Jessika Workman wants residents to know the hospital has no intention of closing, and they remain committed to serving the community as best they can. They are operating at 100% capacity and want people to know that the hospital is there for all its patients.
