Trinity Medical Center and Irondale, AL, set mediation date in relocation dispute

Birmingham Business Journal, April 7, 2009

Trinity Medical Center and the city of Irondale, AL, will use mediation in an effort to resolve a multimillion-dollar dispute over the hospital's decision to switch its relocation site. The hospital and government officials will meet May 27 in an attempt to settle out of court an argument over the city's investment to prepare a site for Trinity to build a $316 million, 424-bed hospital. Despite site preparations and state approval for the Irondale move, Trinity changed its mind and decided to relocate to the unfinished former HealthSouth Corp. Digital Hospital.
