PAULS VALLEY, Okla. -- Garvin County's only medical center got a reprieve late Wednesday afternoon.

Pauls Valley General Hospital, which had been threatened with a shutdown, will remain open, but there will be some changes.

The Pauls Valley City Council voted to shift management of the 64-bed facility to Alliance Health Partners Oklahoma.

CEO Frank Avignone told KTEN the organization plans to preserve the hospital and return it to its original mission.

"During the meeting tonight we had a number of physicians who want to come practice here... surgeons, specialists, who want to come back and start providing services," he said.
