Madera Community Hospital, a healthcare provider in Madera, California, with over $200 million in total patient revenue and 106 staffed beds, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and will close permanently on January 10, 2023.
Madera Community Hospital has previously agreed to be acquired by Trinity Health Corporation. Trinity finally opted not to forward with the cooperation.
“It really disappoints me that Trinity Health has opted to terminate its affiliation arrangement with Madera Community Hospital,” said Congressman Jim Costa (CA-16) in a statement issued after the partnership was canceled. “We have been working with Madera Hospital and its Board of Directors, the California Attorney General, and state and local authorities for more than 18 months to help maintain access to Madera Hospital and the full range of services that only this acute hospital provides in Madera County. I believe the Attorney General examined the application fairly and imposed appropriate conditions in order to protect the community. Unfortunately, these conditions did not meet the requirements of Trinity Health Care Systems.”
Madera Community Hospital filed bankruptcy on January 3, 2023, at that time services in the ER, OB ward, as well as outpatient and surgery closed. All patients remaining at the hospital on the closing day will be transferred to other hospitals by January 17, 2023.
