Haxtun Hospital could be under new management after the first of the year if negotiations go well.

Jim Brundige, Hospital aAdministrator, has announced the signing of a letter of intent by the Haxtun Hospital District board of directors with the Denver-based Castle Rock Medical Group to provide management services.

The HHD board of directors has been looking for some time at options that might ease the financial strains for the District. Last year a proposal to merge with Holyoke gained momentum and then fell through when differences of opinions between the two boards surfaced. The District then decided to apply for Critical Access Hospital status which was expected to bring in additional revenues of between $200,000 and $250,00 annual. CA was granted to the District this past summer.
