Settlement Reached in Hosptial Lawsuit

3-9-06 - A settlement was finally reached in a lawsuit filed over two years ago against Intergris Marshall Memorial Hospital, the city of Madill, and the county commissioners.

Landowners were angered over a new addition added to the hospital in 2002. In the suit they stated the construction damaged their water drainage system, created large quantities of dust and debris on their property, and nothing was implemented to keep it form happening.

Everyone reached a settlement agreement during a meeting back in February. Due to a confidentiality agreement, an exact award amount will not be made public.
