Roseland Hospital could be shut down as early as Wednesday unless the state comes up with about $600,000 to make payroll.

Roseland officials say Governor Quinn’s office promised them the state would give them the money needed to keep the hospital open, but then told them Friday the funding wasn’t available.

Roseland is $7 million in debt.

The state owes the hospital $6 million, but Governor Quinn denies that.
