Hospital to close after proposed sale falls through

One of the largest hospital chains in Rhode Island says it will close Memorial Hospital in Pawtucket after a deal to sell it to a California-based health system fell through.

Care New England on Tuesday said its board voted Monday night to close the facility.

The Providence-based nonprofit health system had taken over the struggling hospital in 2013. It had been working to sell the hospital to Prime HealthCare, which owns a hospital in Woonsocket. But negotiations recently fell apart because the two sides could not agree on terms.

The state Department of Health will need to sign off on the closure.
