Landmark Medical Center is one step closer to being sold.
Michael Fine, Director of the RI Department of Health, approved on Friday the sale of Woonsocket's ‘Landmark Medical Center and Rehabilitation Hospital of Rhode Island (RHRI)' to Prime Health Services out of California.
The deal still has to be approved by the Attorney General; but, Landmark's president and CEO Rick Charest stated that the approval is "welcome news" for the community.
Prime Healthcare is an award-winning hospital system recognized as a Top 15 Health System in the nation.
