PARIS, Tenn. (WTVF) — There is great disappointment in Henry County.
As we’ve reported, the Henry County Medical Center is struggling financially and recently announced plans to shut down its OB-GYN ward.
Many had hoped the hospital would be able to keep its maternity ward open if Blue Cross Blue Shield paid more for moms and babies on TennCare. But NewsChannel 5 Investigates has discovered that BlueCross just made an offer to the hospital.
The only problem is that it doesn’t even come close to what is needed.
