Memorial suing Stone County Hospital

Memorial Hospital at Gulfport has filed suit against the former Stone County Hospital and a medical clinic for more than $450,000 in unpaid building repairs.

According to our media partner the Sun Herald, a lawsuit was filed in Harrison County Circuit Court this week.

Memorial says it entered into a 2019 operations lease with the Stone County hospital and clinic.

Memorial says the lease required Stone County entities to pay more than $10,000 in building repairs. Stone County Hospital needed repairs to its heating and air conditioning systems in 2020.

Stone County has yet to reimburse Memorial for the cost, which was more than $453,000.

Memorial is asking a judge to order the Stone hospital to pay up as well as attorney’s fees, interest, and punitive damages.

As of yesterday, no response had been filed to Memorial’s suit.
