JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Jefferson County has secured contracts with area hospitals to treat Cooper Green Mercy Health Services patients.

Tuesday, the commission approved 10 contracts, totaling about $14 million. The agreement means UAB Hospital, UAB West, St. Vincent's and Princeton Baptist Health System will provide overnight care and surgeries for Cooper Green patients.

"Right now it's going to be convenient having those contracts in place with great hospitals we have in Birmingham, Alabama. It's great for the patient and for their families," Commissioner Sandra Little Brown said.

Commissioners say their next step is to find a permanent director for Cooper Green and open community clinics.
