Roseland Hospital expected to shut down Wednesday

The operators of a South Side hospital say they will have to shut down this week because the state owes them millions of dollars.

Roseland Community Hospital is $7 million in debt; hospital executives say the state owes them $6 million of that.

Governor Quinn had promised not to let the hospital close under his watch and his office was working with them as late as Friday.

The hospital will have to close on Wednesday, if it can’t come up with $600,000 for payroll.
