ASHLAND, Ky. (WKYT/WSAZ) - A hospital in Boyd County is shutting down later this year.
That means Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital (OLBH) will close.
The hospital employs about 1,000 people.
“The announcement that Bellefonte Hospital is closing is devastating news for our community. We have so many critical health care needs that are best met by a local facility,” said Rep. Danny Bentley, R-Russell.
Hospital officials say more information will be provided in the coming months. In the interim, care will continue as normal.
