On Thursday, a judge approved the sale of personal property belonging to Saint Catherine Medical Center in Fountain Springs.
According to an article on the RepublicanHerald.com, the building will almost certainly cease to be a hospital as a result of the ruling. This ends the hospital’s 129-year history here in Schuylkill County.
The sale will be at least for 2 days, a Saturday and Monday, in mid-October. Advertising for the auction will begin soon. Only personal property will be sold, not the building itself or the land on which is sits.
Expenses will be deducted from the sale, and proceeds will be distributed to the hospital’s creditors.
