It was the end of a long journey, but Monday Bowie Hospital Authority directors signed the sales agreement with Bowie Real Estate Holdings, L.P., operated by Dr. Faraz Hashmi. The company will buy the hospital and several of its adjacent buildings for $1.5 million. The parties will shoot for a May 16 closing date. Dr. Hashmi said the new name for the reopened hospital will be Central Hospital of Bowie, and the company has plans for it to be part of a system that will ultimately expand to a regional health care center. BHA Chairman Tim Winn and Dr. Hashmi signed the documents, followed by a toast by those present. Read the full story in the mid-week News.
