I noticed this week when I stayed at the hospital with my brother who had surgery they had signs posted outside the hospital that no weapons open or conceal were allowed. I was under the impression that the hospital was owned by the city or the county one. But now I am not sure.

Here is the only information I could find. I am not well versed in this legal stuff. Does what is written below make it a privately own non-profit company or is it still owned by the city and county? Or the state for that matter? It looks to me like the local governments created their own non-profit corporation and if so can they still ban OC there?

Their viewpoint will be that they get many gunshot victims of gang related activity & end up having 100s of rival gang members in their facility at any one time ... that will be one of their reasons ...

That would be funny. Gunshots here are rare and gang activity is pretty nil or petty stuff to say the least. I listen to the scanner a lot. A leo could get pretty bored here.

Good Luck In The ER.

If you enter the building through one of the main entrances, no one would know you were carrying. BUT---if you come in through the emergency room, either during the day or after hours, you WILL go through a metal detector and your bags/purses WILL be searched. I know, I've gone through it a couple of times there. :p Ridiculous.

This is interesting. If it is a privately-owned facility then I could see the use of metal detectors. If it is owned by a government agency I don't see how they could make an E.R. a Constitution-free zone.

Well I still haven't had a chance to go down there yet. But I did find this information online. Do I understand any of this legal stuff. LOL no. If anyone else can make heads or tails of it let me know what you think. Too it looks like the hospital was just turned into a private non profit after a merger with what use to be a local catholic hospital.

Here is what I got from the PVA search:

And here is all the stuff from the sec of state:
