No More Babies at Franklin Memorial Hospital

Carilion Clinic will remove the delivery of babies from the third of its rural hospitals, Franklin Memorial (above). Carilion earlier announced it was stopping the delivery of babies at Bedford Memorial and Stonewall Jackson Hospital in Lexington, a trend among major health care organizations that own rural hospitals.

Carilion will continue deliveries at Roanoke Memorial in Roanoke and New River Valley Medical Center in Christiansburg. Babies will no longer be delivered at Franklin Memorial after June 13.
