Little Rock physician Bruce Murphy has bought MedCath Corp.'s majority share in the Arkansas Heart Hospital. He was already an investor in the hospital and bought control through a company he controls.
MedCath has been shucking hospital interests around the country.
MedCath will net about $60 million from sale of its 70 percent interest.
Murphy was a plaintiff in the successful lawsuit over the Baptist Medical System's effort to deny staff privileges to doctors with interests in competing hospitals.
