by James Jordan, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington City Council voted to guarantee a loan the hospital is getting from a local bank to help with cash flow. The loan is for $150,000. But the city will only be on the hook for that if the hospital is unable to pay the loan off.
The vote was held at a special meeting at city hall Thursday. Sumner Regional Medical Center was discussed at length.
The hospital is in a little better shape than it was a year or so ago when it was in a crisis and there were fears it might close.
