Martin General Hospital Closed
It is no secret Martin General Hospital has experienced financial challenges related to declining population and utilization trends that were outlined in the county’s Feasibility Study.
The goal has long been to determine the right path to preserve local access to health care for the community. We provided Martin County Commission with a proposal to revert the hospital back to Martin County, incorporated their requested clarifications and any requested changes and gave them an extension of time to consider our proposal at a called meeting on August 1. The County chose not to respond to our proposal and the hospital is now forced to suspend operations today and to file for bankruptcy.
Though this is a very emotional decision, Martin General Hospital is no longer accepting patients, including emergency patients, and the hospital has filed for bankruptcy. If you are experiencing a medical emergency, call 9-1-1. The nearest emergency room is ECU Health Beaufort Hospital in Washington, NC is 22 miles south.
To be certain, these difficult decisions do not do justice to the hard work and dedication of the Martin General Hospital employees, nurses, physicians, volunteers, and board members. Their legacy of commitment to the community will endure in the countless lives they have touched over the years.
The following clinics remain open to care for patients: Martin Family Medicine, Roanoke Orthopedics, Roanoke Specialty Services, Williamson Heart & Vascular, Roanoke Surgical
The following clinics have moved offices to 232 Green Street: Williamson Heart & Vascular, Roanoke Specialty Services, Roanoke Surgical
