Bowie Memorial Hospital sale contract has been approved and signed

BOWIE, TX (KAUZ) -

There was a lot to celebrate at the Bowie Memorial Hospital board meeting Monday night.

Hospital board members and the medical facilitys new owners the Hashmi Group approved and signed the sale contract selling the hospital for $1.5 million dollars.

The medical facility will now be called the Central Hospital of Bowie, and Doctor Hashmi of the Hashmi group said he has big plans for the hospital.
       
Our aim is not just to restart the hospital, but to advance to a point that it becomes a regional center, said Doctor Hashmi.
This goal will require physician recruitment and adding new services.

The Hashmi Groups mission is to provide high quality care to the residents of Bowie and to make sure the hospital remains viable.

Doctor Hashmi wants the community to be a part of these changes and feel comfortable in their new hospital.

He said he will be reaching out to the community every step of the way.
       
I would also like to hold town hall meetings where people can directly ask us questions and we can answer them, because our objectives are very transparent, said Doctor Hashmi.
Lynn Heller, Bowie Memorial Hospital board CEO, said he is excited about the approval of the sale contract and believes the Hashmi Group is the right choice for Bowie.

        Over time the people will come to realize that these are very sincere people, intelligent and very committed to Bowie, said Heller.

Heller said the board received more good news, adding the Medicare audit from 2012 that was going to cost the hospital board $435,000 was dropped after the appropriate paper work was submitted.
After the settlement appeal is finalized the board will only owe Medicare an estimated $36,000.

The next step in the sale of Bowie Memorial is finalizing the documents for the change of ownership, and closing the deal which is expected to take place on May 16th.
