The Somervell County Hospital Authority Board agreed Monday to hire a new auditor to review the last three months of 2009 financial data for Glen Rose Medical Center.

    Condley and Co. LLC, a 10-partner firm in Abilene, will review financial information from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31, 2009. Board members wanted to change external audit firms to get a fresh look at the numbers they inherited when they took their jobs in January.

    The board received five proposals, but liked that Condley and Co. had worked with rural hospitals and hospital systems.

    The audit will begin the last week of April and take six to eight weeks. The firm will present the review results to the board around the end of July or early July.
