Nearly a year ago, the Hot Spring County Medical Center approached the Quorum Court asking them to continue the current 1/2 cent sales tax, which will sunset on Dec. 31.
After the bill was passed, the hospital asked for the bill be set for a longer time period. They also went before the Quorum Court asking for its approval of the hospital entering into a partnership with Baptist Health.
