A lawyer for Cheboygan Memorial Hospital says sale of the recently closed northern Michigan medical center is expected to close Tuesday morning, clearing the way for it to reopen.

Shawn M. Riley says hearings Monday in U.S. District Court in Bay City removed impediments to the sale of the hospital to Flint-based McLaren Health Care Corp.

The planned sale of the hospital fell through four weeks ago because of problems in getting needed federal regulatory approval for treatment of patients covered by the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

The hospital was Charlevoix County's largest employer with about 400 workers. It's unknown how many people will be rehired.
