The board of Skaggs Regional Medical Center in Branson, Mo., has narrowed its search for a financial partner to two companies, a health system out of nearby Springfield, Mo., and Brentwood-based LifePoint Hospitals. Skaggs, which has 165 beds, lost more than $2 million in 2010 on revenues of almost $400 million.
“We’ve been pleased by the response.” Mahoney said. “Our potential partners have shared their enthusiasm for our growing, dynamic community and the improvements we’ve already put in place at Skaggs. This has been an affirming and exciting process for all of us.”
