Warren Hospital bond-sale approval meeting set

TRENTON – A state agency will meet early next year to consider a bond sale approval involving a hospital whose sale may be completed soon.

The state Health Care Facilities Financing Authority will meet Jan. 12 at 10 a.m. to consider giving its OK to a bond sale on behalf of Warren Hospital in Phillipsburg.

Earlier, Attorney General Paula T. Dow had approved a proposed merger between St. Luke’s Hospital and Health Network of Bethlehem, Pa., and Warren Hospital.

Warren is a 214-bed, non-profit hospital with approximately 900 employees.  The proposed merger was announced in April.

The hospital, according to published reports, has been reducing work force and salaries over the last few years and has been looking to restructure debt.

The bond sale approval meeting will be held at the authority office, 22 S. Clinton Ave., Trenton.
