Belhaven to host NAACP moral rally Saturday

BELHAVEN, N.C. (WNCT) – Those looking to reopen Pungo Hospital in Belhaven will be joined by the state NAACP Saturday for a moral rally for healthcare justice.

North Carolina NAACP President Rev. William Barber will be in attendance.

They are fighting to re-open Pungo Hospital, which closed in the town in July 2014.

The town recently got a judge to issue a temporary restraining order against the hospital’s owners, Pantego Creek LLC, who planned to demolish the building.

The rally is scheduled for 11 a.m. at the hospital.
