North Carolina lawsuit: Open Rex, WakeMed pact

Raleigh News & Observer, May 29, 2008

In response to continued efforts to move Franklin County, NC's only hospital out of Louisburg, town officials have filed a lawsuit against one of the partners in the project, Rex Healthcare. The suit seeks copies of a confidential agreement officials say the hospital struck with WakeMed not to oppose each other's expansion plans. The lawsuit names Rex and its nonprofit parent, UNC Healthcare, and asks a judge to declare a public record any confidential agreement Rex entered into with WakeMed or any other hospital to remain silent during the state's review process for new hospital projects.
