Quincy Medical Center Set to Close After 124 Years of Service

Hospital was facing serious financial struggles

A Massachusetts hospital that first opened its doors more than 100 years ago is set to close.

After suffering multi-million dollar losses, the Quincy Medical Center will no longer be operational as of midnight on Saturday.

"It has been struggling for many, many years," said hospital worker Nancy Munise.

The sudden decision to close the hospital came as a surprise to its nearly 700 employees.

"Pretty much caught people really off guard, really surprised," said hospital worker Diane Bulman.

The 124-year-old hospital stopped admitting patients last weekend. All the beds there are now empty.

The hospital's owner, Steward Health Care, has agreed to keep a satellite facility open in Quincy to provide emergency medical services through Dec. 2015.
