Sharon Regional Medical Center

Sharon Regional Medical Center in Sharon.

Sharon Regional Medical Center told its employees today that it could close the birthing center at its Sharon hospital, The Herald has learned.

A timetable wasn’t immediately available, but hospital systems are required to give the state 90 days' notice, if they drop a major service.

The closing would leave UPMC Horizon’s Farrell hospital as the sole birthing center in Mercer County.

A hospital official declined to confirm or deny the reports.
