Pickering to study viability of hospitals

The office of State Auditor Stacey Pickering will be studying which community-owned hospitals in Mississippi are facing economic difficulties and why.

Pickering says he is concerned that some accessibility to health care will be lost if those hospitals can’t remain viable.

Pickering spoke last week to a forum hosted by Mississippi State University’s Stennis Institute of Government and the Capitol press corps.
