Hearing to approve sale of St. Christopher's Hospital scheduled for Monday

WILMINGTON, Delaware (WPVI) -- The future of St. Christopher's Hospital for Children is being decided in bankruptcy court in Wilmington.

A judge could give the green light on a deal that would make Drexel University and Tower Health the new owners of the hospital.

The two groups won the bid to buy St. Christopher's on Friday for $50 million.

The auction came in the aftermath of the closure of Hahnemann University Hospital.

The parent company of both hospitals filed for bankruptcy in June.
