Gov. Justice issues statement on Williamson Memorial Hospital acquisition


​CHARLESTON, WV – Gov. Jim Justice issued the following statement today after learning of the acquisition of Williamson Memorial Hospital by the Williamson Health & Wellness Center.

“We got really great news today from Mingo County and I’m excited that Williamson Memorial Hospital is going to remain open for the community,” said Gov. Jim Justice. “I told you yesterday that private negotiations were underway and they have obviously come to fruition with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court approving a bid from Williamson Health & Wellness Center to purchase most of the hospital’s assets. They plan to continue critical functions at the hospital and add new services. It’s a real blessing for Williamson and Mingo County and I am extremely appreciative and thankful.”​
