With hospital shot down, Spring Hill, TN, wonders: What's next?
Had all gone as planned since 2006, when the Hospital Corporation of America first proposed a 56-bed hospital for Spring Hill, the company would have been preparing for the early 2010 grand opening of the institution. Instead, HCA is re-evaluating its options after three years of court and administrative battles with the two county-owned hospitals that serve the city. Officials of TriStar Health Systems, a division of HCA, said recently they would not appeal a court ruling blocking plans for the hospital on the south side of town. Instead, the company will pursue other options to serve the area's residents.
