​​​BOWIE, MONTAGUE COUNTY​ - Sale of the former Bowie Memorial Hospital is a done deal and by late summer or early fall 2016, Bowie could be served by the new Central Hospital of Bowie.​

The formal closing of the $1.5 million deal was a family affair for the Hashmi family as they bought the hospital under Bowie Real Estate Holdings L.P.

Dr. Hasan F. Hashmi, chairman of the board of directors of Texas General Hospital, purchased the hospital.

He said the hospital will initially open with the core services.

"An emergency room is missing the most here, so it would include an ER, x-ray and lab, the core services. This will be a window for the direction we need to go bringing back what is needed the most," Hashmi said.

Suleman Hashmi told the group the company also wants to buy from and work with local vendors.

Not being part of a national network or contract allows them to be very site-specific in doing business.

Regarding the number of employees that will initially be hired, Faraz Hashmi said it would be about 50 full-time people.​
