GALLUP, N.M. (AP) - The CEO of Rehoboth McKinley Christian Hospital in Gallup says it won’t downsize to help solve its financial troubles.

According to the Gallup Independent (https://bit.ly/1lKttWL ), CEO Barry Mousa had said hospital officials were considering scaling it back to a critical access hospital with up to 25 beds and 96-hour limits on hospital stays.

However, Mousa now says the hospital will remain an acute care hospital with about 60 beds.

Mousa says the proposal now being dropped wouldn’t have given the hospital enough flexibility to respond to local health care needs.
