Many cite concerns over failing finances at Ashland Community Hospital
Physicians at Ashland Community Hospital are urging the City Council to approve a merger with San Francisco-based Dignity Health, saying without it the hospital could close within a year.
The vast majority of the medical staff at ACH is in support of the merger, said Dr. Miriam Soriano, chief of medical staff.
"Dignity is vital to having a hospital here," said Soriano, who has worked at ACH for 13 years and has been involved in a yearlong series of meetings on a possible merger. "I definitely feel like this is something we must do."
