CHOCTAW COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI) — Choctaw County supervisors may decide Friday which of two companies will manage the county-owned hospital.

Supervisors spent much of Tuesday considering proposals from Missouri-based Noble Healthcare and Trilogy Healthcare of Madison, but postponed a final decision until their meeting Friday.

Pioneer Health Services is cancelling its contract with the county effective July 31.

In the last three years, the county has spent millions of dollars upgrading its critical access hospital and nursing home to provide care to county residents. They added they want a management company that will stick with the county for the long run.
