      McLaren Health Care Corp. may buy Cheboygan hospital


      Health clinics that were once affiliated



      with Cheboygan Memorial Hospital have reopened as the hospital looks at a possible sale



      to Flint-based



      McLaren Health Care Corp.


      The Cheboygan Daily Tribune reports McLaren has hired 55 doctors and others and opened the



      clinics Monday. Cheboygan Memorial and its clinics unexpectedly



      closed last week.


      The hospital and health system say they support the sale but



      McLaren needs to work out certain



      issues with the federal



      government's Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.


      Cheboygan Memorial on March 1 announced it was filing for



      Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection



      after losing more than $7 million



      last year.


      A hospital official says a conference call is planned Wednesday



      to discuss if the sale can go



      forward.
