Madison, AL, hospital decision on hold again
Huntsville Times/Birmingham News, February 21, 2008
The Alabama Certificate of Need board was scheduled to vote whether for-profit Community Health Systems Inc., the parent company of Crestwood Medical Center, or nonprofit Huntsville Hospital should build a 60-bed hospital in Madison. Not enough members of the CON board showed up to vote, however, so planned testimony by each hospital, and a planned vote on the issue, has been postponed until March 19, 2008.
