Allen County Regional Hospital trustees have voted to file a lawsuit over leaks that have plagued the hospital since it opened. The Iola Register reports that the hospital has worked for years to resolve the issue with the architect, HFG of Wichita, and the builder, Murray Company of Overland Park. Earlier this year, the trustees and attorneys worked with a mediator but were unable to reach agreement. They are suing the contractor.
