Madison, AL, hospital hearing delayed
A court hearing on a proposed Madison, AL, hospital has been delayed until Jan. 9. Crestwood Medical Center is asking Montgomery County Circuit Judge Truman Hobbs Jr. to overturn a vote by the state Certificate of Need Review Board last March granting Huntsville Hospital the right to build a 60-bed hospital in Madison. Its lawsuit claims review board members unfairly ignored an administrative law judge who ruled in November 2007 that Crestwood had made "by far" the best case for expanding into Madison.
