Those needing healthcare services in Fulton can breath a sigh of relief.

Empower HMS stepped forward and purchased the Fulton Medical Center in an announcement made at the City Hall Tuesday.

The group specialized in bailing out rural hospitals that are ready to close.

"We have never closed down a hospital," vice president J.T. Lander said. "We have never taken away a service offered in one of our facilities."

Empower HMS and Fulton Medican Center did not say when the deal would take effect.
