Bowie Hospital board takes $1.5 million bid

Directors of the Bowie Hospital Authority Friday accepted the $1.5 million bid from Dr. Hasan Farid Hashmi for the purchase of the hospital.
Hashmi, whose family operates Texas General Hospital, will now have five days in which to submit a sales agreement, plus 10 percent earnest money deposit ($150,000) and a letter from a financial institution certifying the bidder has enough liquid assets to complete the purchase.
They also will shoot for a March 4 closing date.
