DREXEL HILL, Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- The Pennsylvania Department of Health announced it is suspending operations at Delaware County Memorial Hospital on Monday.

In a statement issued Friday night, Delaware County officials said the decision to close the hospital is because of inadequate staffing.

Just last month, a judge granted a temporary injunction preventing Crozer Health from closing the hospital and turning it into a behavioral health facility.
