Battle for hospital expansion ends in Wake County, NC
Two winners emerged from the battle for 41 hospital beds and four operating rooms in Wake County, NC: State regulators approved WakeMed's application to use the beds for a new women's hospital in North Raleigh, while four operating rooms went to the Orthopaedic Surgery Center of Raleigh, a partnership that includes Rex Healthcare. The biggest loser among the applicants was Novant Health, as the Winston-Salem hospital chain proposed using the beds and the operating rooms to build a community hospital in Holly Springs.
