Yet another hospital from Regional General Hospital owner in financial troubles

Another hospital owned by the owner of Regional General Hospital in Williston is having financial troubles.

According to WCTI-TV, Washington County Hospital in North Carolina is late paying employees, has let health insurance lapse and stopped paying into retirement accounts.

It is owned by Empower HMS, whose CEO Jorge Perez owns Regional General. Several former employees close to the situation tell us some of the same problems exist there.

Washington County hospital is at least the fifth Perez-owned hospital in the last month reportedly struggling to pay its bills.
