No patients will be moved from Dorothea Dix mental hospital Wednesday.

The state wanted to start moving 170 patients out of the hospital and into the Central Regional Hospital in Butner beginning Oct. 1.

Last week a Wake County judge delayed Dix's closure following a lawsuit citing safety issues at the new hospital. It's the fifth time the closure of Dorothea Dix has been delayed.
