WILLISTON, Fla. (WCJB)-- The Regional General Hospital in Williston is having a payroll issue, according to some former employees.
At least three former workers there tell us there have been pay problems for months.
Meanwhile, a judge has placed Lauderdale Community Hospital in Tennessee in receivership after ongoing claims of missed paychecks, unpaid back taxes, and supplies not being purchased.
Jorge Perez's Empower HMS owns Lauderdale. His Regional Health Partners owns the hospital in Williston. Court records show Regional Health Partners owes a million dollars in back taxes.
An attempt to reach the hospital CEO was unsuccessful.
