House Bails Out Troubled Hospital

This afternoon, the Mississippi House of Representatives almost unanimously passed a bill allowing Attala County to issue bonds so they can bail out Montfort Jones Memorial Hospital is Kosciusko. Rep. Jason White (R-West), the local representative, has long opposed efforts to offer additional Medicaid funds to keep the hospital up and running.

This could only be the beginning of hospitals begging the legislature to bail them out because the Republican legislature and Governor Bryant continue to deny the reality that our hospitals - and patients - are in serious trouble.
