Wrangell Medical Center held open meetings Thursday to start a second attempt at building a new community hospital after the first attempt stalled in 2012.
The Wrangell Medical Center is slowly recovering from a financial crisis that became apparent at the end of last year, but its financial problems aren’t over yet. That’s what Wrangell Medical Center CEO Marla Sanger told the hospital’s board of directors and the Borough Assembly this week.
Wrangell Medical Center’s auditor and former Chief Financial Officer told the hospital board Wednesday that the medical center has serious financial problems.
The board returned to one of its most difficult issues from this past year. Dr. Greg Salard’s suspension of privileges has been a major point of contention.
Six recalled Wrangell hospital board members want a judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed against them by the municipal government.
