March 30, 2013

WOONSOCKET – State regulators on Friday unexpectedly suspended their review of Prime Healthcare Services application to purchase Landmark Medical Center, leaving the status of the sale in limbo.
The decision came after the 20-hospital, for-profit chain headquartered in Ontario, Calif., had submitted some 1,400 pages of additional information to the regulators after Prime’s first application was deemed incomplete.
Despite the voluminous amount of paperwork they received, the regulators said Prime’s response failed to clear up the omissions and in some cases raised even more questions.
