NORTH ADAMS, Mass. (AP) - The parent company of North Adams Regional Hospital has filed for federal bankruptcy protection, even as efforts to re-open the emergency room continue.

The petition filed Thursday will lead to the liquidation and sale of the hospital’s assets, and to the dissolution of Northern Berkshire Health Systems under the authority of a court-appointed trustee.

The Republican (https://bit.ly/1eesdbl ) reports that staff at Berkshire Medical Center will continue to prepare for the reopening of the emergency room within a week to 10 days because a Superior Court judge on Thursday extended his temporary restraining order giving BMC access to the building and medical records inside.

The North Adams hospital closed Friday after four days’ notice, putting hundreds of people out of work and leaving thousands of residents without a nearby emergency room.
