dd-exterior-rendering-1(WLOS Channel 13 News)  Monday, North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein released a letter dated Nov. 16, 2018, from Stout Consulting, which had been hired by the AG to review the Mission Hospital sale price. In the letter, Stout said the $1.468 billion sale price “is fair, from a financial point of view.”

Stein was not available for comment, but in December he said his office had been inundated with communications from concerned residents and reviewing the sale was his top priority.
