AG Hood speaks out about OCH Regional Medical Center’s future

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) – Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood is speaking out about the matter concerning the possible sale of the OCH Regional Medical Center.

A petition calling for a vote is being circulated about the future of the hospital.

According to the Starkville Daily News, Hood says the petition is invalid because the Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors have not made a decision about whether to lease or sell the hospital.

Hood also says supervisors have no authority to order an election to get resident feedback once they make a decision.
