PAULS VALLEY, Oklahoma -- Former employees of Pauls Valley Regional Medical Center aren't going down without a fight, and a Tuesday evening meeting at City Hall could be one way for their voices to be heard. 

Garvin County's only hospital closed its doors on October 12, and these employees want to get paid. They also want to make sure they receive accrued benefits.

Employees told KTEN they asked to speak at the Tuesday's City Council meeting, but nothing was added to the agenda.

The employees could still file a lawsuit against the city, and one former staffer told me that while they have spoken with an attorney, nothing has been filed yet.

Liz Staggs has been involved with the situation since the beginning. She said this fight is about more than the hospital; it's about giving the families and the community what they deserve after the hospital closed its doors.

Staggs said she thinks the city is unaware of how serious hospital employees are to get what's fair, but added that Pauls Valley will realize it after Tuesday night.
