Struggling small-town hospitals declare bankruptcy



March 19, 2019 - 10:05 AM

Horton Community Hospital, which closed last week, was one of three Kansas hospitals declaring Chapter 11bankruptcy.

Three Kansas hospitals are among six hospitals once run by a North Kansas City-based company that have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Two of the three, Horton Community Hospital and Oswego Community Hospital, have closed in the last few weeks. The third, Hillsboro Community Hospital, remains open under the auspices of a court-ordered receivership.  

A spokesman for Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt said last week that his office is conducting an ongoing investigation into Horton Community Hospital, but he declined to provide details.
