Craig Pyles reminds audience that Chapter 9 just part of a plan

As the Adair County Hospital Board of Trustees
authorized the filing for protection while reorganizing under Chapter 9, Board Chairman Craig Pyles reminded the media and the audience that the step was taken after every other option was taken to work with creditors as the hospital recovers. "We do have a plan," he said, adding that it's just the best option while working with creditors. He and Attorney Elmer George emphasized that the problems Westlake is having are inherited ones, that the hospital is now stabilized financially except for long term debt. Mr. Pyles said that patients will continue to be seen. Doctors and dedicated medical staff will be there. That Chapter 9 is only temporary and that a bright future is in store.
