FAIRMONT, W.Va. (AP) - Alecto Healthcare Services LLC has completed its acquisition of Fairmont General Hospital.

Media outlets report that the hospital announced the acquisition’s finalization on Monday. The hospital is now called Fairmont Regional Medical Center.

Fairmont General filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in September 2013. A federal bankruptcy judge approved the sale in June.

Hospital president and CEO Peggy Coster says the sale will allow the facility to make capital improvements.
