March 15, 2019

PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) — In a story March 14 about the Kansas attorney general’s office serving a warrant to search a hospital, The Associated Press erroneously referred to the hospital as Oswego Community College. The warrant was to search Oswego Community Hospital.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Kansas attorney general investigating 2 closed hospitals

The Kansas Attorney General’s office says it executed a search warrant at a southeastern Kansas hospital that closed last month

PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas attorney general’s office says it executed a search warrant at a southeastern Kansas hospital that closed last month.

The Pittsburg Sun reports the search warrant was executed in February at Oswego Community Hospital about a week after the hospital and two other medical facilities in Labette County closed.

C.J. Grover, spokesman Attorney General Derek Schmidt, confirmed the search warrant but declined to comment further.

On Tuesday, the Horton Community Hospital in Brown County also closed. Grover said the attorney general’s office also is investigating that hospital.

The hospitals were once run by EmpowerHMS, which has had several hospitals close across the country.
