BATON ROUGE - A mental hospital in Greenwell Springs is closing its doors Wednesday morning.
The Department of Health and Hospitals began transferring patients out of the facility today and into another facility in Jackson, La.
A legislative committee approved the transfer and closure back in December, part of a $251 million budget cut that affected many state agencies.
