A Baldwin Park hospital that was $750,000 in the red has closed its doors.
Terrace Plaza Medical Center on Francisquito Avenue had too little money even to finish the month of June, said Ernest Pooleon, supervisor of licensing at the county Department of Health Services. The for-profit hospital closed June 22.
There were only a "smattering" of patients at the 95-bed hospital when it closed, Pooleon said. The patients were transferred to Queen of the Valley Hospital in West Covina and other local facilities, he said.
The hospital filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy before the closure, but Pooleon did not know when.
