Statement from the Governor’s Office on Roseland Hospital

Posted by Juanita Bratcher On June - 4 - 2013

“Governor Quinn is concerned about Roseland’s long term stability, and that’s why his top healthcare advisors have been meeting with them repeatedly over the past six weeks, including yesterday. Unfortunately, the executives have failed to respond to our requests for a viable plan to properly run the hospital.

“To be clear, the hospital and its board of directors have serious management issues that need to be addressed. Roseland Hospital is in deep debt and they have mismanaged their resources into the situation they are in today.

“The State of Illinois does not owe Roseland $6 million. The State owes nothing. In fact, to help the hospital in the short-term, the State of Illinois advanced all payments to Roseland for this year.

“There has also never been any promise to use taxpayer money to keep the hospital open, which is not in the state’s control. (This is not a state-run hospital – we do not appoint the CEO or board.)

“The State of Illinois remains committed to working with the hospital and helping them identify potential partners and available resources within the law to develop a plan for long-term sustainability. Those discussions are ongoing. However, the hospital has never provided a plan or any information to move forward.”

 Brooke Anderson

Press Secretary to Governor Pat Quinn
