Here are four hospitals closing departments or ending services since Aug. 1:

1. Williamston, N.C.-based Martin General Hospital, which closed and filed for bankruptcy on Aug. 3, could also close its six clinics if a buyer isn't found.

2. Northfield (Minn.) Hospital will close its 40-bed long-term care center this October due to staffing and financial challenges.

3. South City Hospital, a 178-bed facility in St. Louis, plans to close in the coming weeks because of financial challenges.

4. Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Corewell Health will close its Lakeview, Mich.-based Spectrum Health Kelsey Hospital in October after a steady decline in admissions.
