Warren City Council members are being asked to lend their support to the Trumbull Regional Medical Center which faces an uncertain future.

Sixth Ward Council Member Honeya Price has drafted a resolution supporting the continued operations of the hospital, and pledging to do whatever is possible to keep TRMC open.

Trumbull Regional is just one of Steward Health Care’s 131 hospitals up for sale following Steward’s bankruptcy filing in May.

The emergency legislation, which is on Wednesday’s council agenda, notes that there are hundreds of union workers at Trumbull Regional Medical Center at risk of losing their jobs if a new operator does not bid to take over the facility.

The resolution says the loss of those jobs will not only impact the region’s economy but will leave only St. Joseph Hospital to serve all of Trumbull County.

The auction of TRMC, as well as Hillside Rehabilitation Hospital in Howland, and Sharon Regional Medical Center in Mercer County, Pennsylvania have been delayed indefinitely while Steward Health Care evaluates bids received for those and other facilities.
