Alabama-based St. Vincent's puts ER construction plans on hold six months

Birmingham News, December 4, 2008

St. Vincent's Health System has notified the state of Alabama it still plans to spend $6.7 million to construct a freestanding emergency department on its One Nineteen Health and Wellness campus, but it will first use a six-month extension to evaluate changes in the marketplace. The four-hospital system said it will use the six-month extension to monitor the economy and its impact on building the proposed site before beginning construction.
