* BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (10/23/08)--Mutual Savings CU announced it will close a branch located at a hospital that filed for a Chapter 11 bankruptcy Monday.

The branch closing is related directly to the hospital's closure, not to performance or stability of the branch, said the $189 million asset credit union's website. Members can go to nearby credit union locations in Forestdale and Gardendale for service, the announcement said … * MEDFORD, Ore.
