With a scant five days notice, here’s your chance to “speak out” about the Floyd Memorial Hospital sale.

Wait, Larry — is that a crosswalk on a street with uncontrolled traffic?

Whether you support or oppose the hospital sale, five days isn’t much time to adjust calendars. Nonetheless, this could be a long one.  

Public meetings to discuss Floyd County finances, hospital sale, by Chris Morris (River Ridge Today)

NEW ALBANY – For the first time since it was announced, the public will get the chance to speak out about the proposed sale of Floyd Memorial Hospital and Health Services to Baptist Health.

Since the sale was announced in March, residents have not been able to voice their opinions, either for or against the transaction. That is until now.

The meeting will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Pine View Government Center. Members of the Floyd County Council and Floyd County Commissioners will be in attendance, as will representatives from Floyd Memorial Hospital.

“The goal of the public meeting is to inform the public about the details of the sale and help the public understand the process and how we got to this point,” said Floyd County Council President Brad Striegel.
