Clarksville hospital to close in April after 10 yearsMarch 1, 2019
By The Associated Press
CLARKSVILLE — A southern Indiana hospital that's struggled financially will close this spring after a decade of operation.
A required state notice sent this week to the Kentuckiana Medical Center's employees says the Clarksville hospital will close April 27, at which time its employees' benefits will end.
WorkOne Southern Indiana's director of operations, Jacqueline James, tells the News and Tribune the hospital's closure will have "a big impact" on the Ohio River city that's just north of Louisville, Kentucky, because about 200 people will lose their jobs.
The 80,000-square-foot hospital opened in 2009 and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection the following year.
The Louisville Courier-Journal reports that the hospital was started by a group of southern Indiana doctors at a time when doctor-owned hospitals and surgical centers were springing up nationwide.
