Sudden shutdown: Secret court motion offers no clues about Astria Regional closure


During a Wednesday hearing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, attorney Andrew Sherman voiced concern about who wasn’t there.

Astria Health filed a motion to close Astria Regional Medical Center in Yakima under seal late last week, which meant the general public was not able to see the motion. The only people notified of the hearing in advance were attor­neys involved in the case and govern­ment agencies who were told of the closure earlier in the week.
