IHC Sues Millard County

Intermountain Healthcare has filed a lawsuit against Millard County. The lawsuit filed last month alleges the county has failed to meet financial obligations to IHC for the operation and management of the Millard County Care Center. In February of 2008, the contract between the county and IHC was terminated and according to the complaint, the county owed nearly $71,000 to IHC. The complaint says Intermountain Healthcare has reduced the amount to $49,000 after collecting outstanding amounts from third party payers and other sources, however the County has refused to pay the remainder of the money owed. Millard County Attorney Richard Waddingham says the county has not yet seen the lawsuit and cannot comment on it.
