Bowie Memorial still seeking viable bidder by Feb. 15 deadline

Bowie Hospital Authority Trustees sold one property Thursday, but they are still waiting to get a viable bidder for the hospital as the Feb. 15 deadline approaches.

It has been a rough road for the hospital board since the closure in late November. The first attempt to sell the hospital fell through when the prospect would not commit to the sale or provide confirmation of financing.

That led the board members to go back to the drawing board to bid out the hospital, but after all the delays they also set a final date to seek for a sales contract as its resources dwindle.

Lynn Heller, chief executive officer, conferred with the board in executive session Thursday afternoon for about one hour to discuss real property.

Although no action was taken, Heller said they have at least three qualified people interested in purchasing the hospital. Read the full story in the weekend News.
