Future of former hospital building remains unclear

The future of Owen County’s former hospital building remains unclear after being purchased by Owenton Properties, LLC earlier this summer.
The members of the limited liability corporation are Deepak Mittal, who worked as a doctor for both New Horizons Medical Center and St. Elizabeth Owen from 1999 until the hospital’s closure in 2017, and Aafaque Akhter, a psychiatry specialist currently practicing in Norton, Maryland. The property sold for $200,000.
