HCA Spring Hill (TN) hospital plans are blocked by judge
The Tennessean, September 4, 2009
Plans for a 56-bed HCA hospital in Spring Hill, TN, took a hit when a judge blocked the project, calling earlier state approval of it "a clear error in judgment." Chancellor Claudia Bonnyman reversed an earlier ruling by the state Health Services Development Agency, which had approved a certificate of need for HCA's project. Bonnyman said the healthcare agency that reviews hospital and other medical construction projects acted "without a reasonably sound factual basis."
