The Haleyville City Council bi-monthly meeting rescheduled the first time because of Martin Luther King Day and the second time because of weather is now set for Monday, January 22, 5:30 p.m. at City Hall.
Over the last several weeks many elected officials and Java Medical Group leadership have been working on a transition plan for Lakeland Community Hospital. A major component of the transition is the formation of a hospital authority which will be used to acquire and operate the hospital in order for healthcare services to continue locally. 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.
