County takes control of hospital

A hospital in one eastern Kentucky county, which filed for bankruptcy in April, is now under the control of the county.

Knox County officials say that they had no other alternative than to take over the Knox County Hospital.

The hospital has dealt with ongoing money issues for several years.

Earlier this year we reported employees were not able to be paid for a time.
