Competing hospital demands hearing on WVU expansion

The Charleston Gazette / Associated Press, March 14, 2012

Mon General Hospital is demanding the West Virginia Health Care Authority hold a hearing on whether WVU Hospitals' $248 million expansion plan is necessary, effectively delaying the four-year construction project by at least six months. Bruce McClymonds, president and chief executive officer of WVU Hospitals, said he's frustrated that the smaller community hospital would object—and rebuff offers to discuss how the two might collaborate. McClymonds said he reached out to Mon General about the need for more beds last April, but "they refused all those ideas and suggestions."
