The report from the Care Quality Commission found the hospital was unsafe because of a lack of senior doctors.
But James Rimmer, the Chief Executive, said the decision was not a reflection on his staff who are 'coping incredibly well'.

The fight to restore a crumbling pier to its former glory have taken a "major step forward" after the council agreed to give its support.
Birnbeck Pier, in Weston-super-Mare, has fallen into disrepair after closing in 1994.
The lifeboat crew no longer have a base there, and the barely-there walkways, which extend for a kilometre, are crumbling.
The Birnbeck Regeneration Trust has been working since 2004 to restore the pier, but it has struggled to get any support from the council, or funding from heritage bodies.
But now, the Trust has announced it has support from the council which means it can start applying for the vital money to help the £16.2million project.
Having the support of the Council is extremely important from the Trust's perspective as it develops new proposals to secure Heritage Lottery funding.
