A Community Health Care Task Force is now formed in Mexico in an effort to keep local health care through hospital services in the town.
The announcement was made yesterday (Tuesday) that the task force will be comprised of individuals from the chamber of commerce, hospital foundation, Mexico city officials, Audrain County officials, and other local supporters.
Recently, SSM Health explored a sale of hospitals in Mexico and Jefferson City to the University of Missouri; however, the negotiations were not successful and the letter of intent for the sale expired on January 7th.
Progress of the local task force will be posted on their Facebook page at “My Health. My Hospital.”
