Landmark gets green light for aggressive sale
By MEGAN HALL
PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Financially troubled Landmark Medical Center in Woonsocket is moving forward with its aggressive timeline to find a buyer. Superior Court Judge Michael Silverstein has approved Landmark's plan to recommend a new owner by April 1st.
Landmark Spokesman Bill Fischer says that's a realistic deadline.
"We're excited about this timeline, we're optimistic that the timeline is going to work," Fischer says. "And we're optimistic and believe that there are multiple bidders that have an interest in courting Landmark."
Fischer says three potential buyers from out of state are visiting the hospital this week. He says there's also been interest from in state, for profit and non-profit organizations.
