Civil rights complaint moves forward on Vidant Pungo closure

Posted: Updated:
BELHAVEN, N.C. - With less than a month to go before Vidant Pungo closes its doors in Beaufort County, NAACP leaders held a town hall meeting Tuesday night.

They talked about the civil rights complaint filed against Vidant.

North Carolina NAACP President Rev. William Barber told 9 On Your Side an investigator's been assigned to the complaint.
     
At a Board of Commissioners meeting Monday night, Belhaven's mayor Adam O'Neal said Pantego Creek is willing to buy the hospital, but wants three million dollars from the county.
     
The mayor is trying to build support, but commissioners aren't completely sold.
