Massillon City Council closed the door Monday on making a deal with the City’s original choice to operate Affinity hospital, but it didn’t lock it. 

Two weeks ago Massillon Mayor Kathy Catazarro Perry named Paramount Matrix Healthcare as the city’s choice to run the Affinity facility, which closed in March.

Other bidders upped their offers prompting Council to delayed authorizing legislation to finalize the deal with Paramount in order to get more information.

Three groups are pitching themselves to Massillon city officials for a chance to take over Affinity Medical Center, which closed earlier this year.

City officials are not saying who the groups are or whether they’re based in Stark County, but each one is proposing a health care-related use for the property.
