Memorial Hospital Shutdown Plans Moving Forward

Steps to close financially-ailing Memorial Hospital in Pawtucket are moving forward.  Care New England submitted an application last week to the state Department of Health stating Memorial will cease operations as an inpatient hospital. It's also seeking approval to eliminate the emergency department and other services.  The closure was announced last month when negotiations for a California-based company to buy the hospital collapsed.
