Baycare gets Florida county's blessing on hospital and helipad proposal

St. Petersburg Times, October 10, 2008

Baycare Health System has received Pasco County, FL's blessing for a building and a helipad. The county's top planners gave Baycare preliminary approval for the helipad as well as permission for a seven- story building that's 118 feet tall, as opposed to the 60 feet allowed by county zoning rules. Baycare owns 35 acres in the Seven Oaks area, where it proposed to build a teaching hospital. But the state Agency for Health Care Administration instead gave the nod in June to a joint proposal by University Community Hospital and Adventist Health System.
