BIG industry has also weighed in to the fight to ensure the Moura Hospital stays open.
An Anglo American spokeswoman said the company had written to the Hospital and Health Service board asking for further details and the options being explored.
"We are working with the government to get a better understanding of the options we have available to us and the potential impact reduced hours at the hospital would have on the Moura community," she said.
"Our priority is ensuring our employees at Dawson mine and members of the local community have the right level of hospital coverage and access to quality health treatment.
"In our letter to the health service board, we have requested they keep us informed and consult with us when they release the options paper."
The spokeswoman said the company would work with community groups to secure the best outcome for Moura.
