Bullitt County, KY, hospital gets state OK
Louisville Courier-Journal, October 16, 2008
A plan to convert Jewish Hospital's outpatient medical center in Bullitt County, KY, into an inpatient hospital with as many as 60 beds has been approved by the state Certificate of Need office. The $55.8 million project was made possible when Gov. Steve Beshear signed an emergency regulation to allow it. Prior to that, state regulations ruled out hospital beds in Bullitt because of the number of unused beds in adjacent Jefferson County.
