Brownsville hospital to reopen
After eight years of closure, a Brownsville hospital will be reopening its doors. The Haywood County Community Hospital closed in 2014 and in that time has gone from being owned by Franklin-based Community Health Systems to a local non-profit to the Haywood County School System before finally making its way into the hands of Braden Health. After millions of dollars worth of renovation, the hospital reopened its doors in August as a walk-in clinic. The reopening is a three-phase process to reopen the emergency room and nine patient rooms by February. While announced before Blue Oval City, Brownsville officials say the reopened hospital will help not only provide vital services to the local community but also help recruit continued business in the area.
