Methodist delays Mississippi hospital plan
Memphis Business Journal, November 13, 2008
Following a year of pushing for a new 100-bed hospital in Olive Branch, Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare Inc. is retracting its certificate of need (CON) application from the Mississippi State Department of Health. The hospital system plans to instead bring the plan to the state Legislature next year. Methodist officials have also been pushing for change in the state's CON laws to allow for a new facility.
