Williamson Medical sale talk voted down

Williamson County commissioners this week voted down a call to look into the possibility of selling Williamson Medical Center, an option that had been proposed by Commissioner Bob Barnwell late last year. While the majority of citizens attending the meeting want no change to the hospital's status, there does seem to be some public support and five of the 24 representatives wanted to pursue the option.

Despite the emphatic vote, Barnwell isn't ready to call it quits on this issue.

“This is a process that needs to at least be evaluated,” he said. “People are talking about a voter referendum.”

“My objective was to get the county out of healthcare,” he added and said he hasn’t lost his passion for the topic. “Healthcare in America is so up in the air right now – it’s a good time to get out of it. The healthcare business is too dangerous. We don’t know what’s coming down the road and ultimately the taxpayer will be stuck with the bill.”
