The Bridgeport hospital will no longer be a hospital. After losing $6.2 million in 19 months operating as a hospital, Wise Regional Health System will convert its Bridgeport campus to an urgent care/ambulatory surgery center in January 2015. The change, which will eliminate the emergency room, was approved last week at a hospital board meeting. According to the Wise County Messenger, the ER in Bridgeport has consistently seen about 400 patients a month, but surveys indicate 95 percent of those could still be treated in an urgent-care environment. The ER will continue to operate through Dec. 31 and the urgent-care clinic will open Jan. 1 or 2.
