North Carolina hospitals vie for new beds
North Carolina's state-regulated hospital industry was allowed this year to bid for 41 more patient beds in Wake County, and now three competing hospital groups are vying for regulators' approval. WakeMed, Novant Health, and Rex Health have delivered multi-million dollar plans to the Certificate of Need section of the NC Department of Health and Human Services, which will determine which competitor gets the beds. The contest for the beds will be the first time new hospital capacity has been available in Wake County for the past three years.
