Lakeland Community Hospital in Haleyville extends closure date to March 31

Lakeland Community Hospital will now stay open until March 31, Mayor Ken Sunseri announced Friday morning.

Prior to this announcement, the hospital planned to close all operations January 31.

The extra time will allow the city of Haleyville to make arrangements to buy the hospital, with the goal of keeping it open long term.

In an emailed statement, the city said “The Haleyville Winston County Hospital Authority is being formed and hospital operations have now been extended through March 31, 2018. This extra time will allow the completion of ownership to be transferred to the Authority, pending necessary approvals.

This development is a favorable step towards keeping the hospital open and operational for Haleyville and the surrounding area.”
