Hospitals line up to oppose Birmingham medical center's plan for move

Birmingham News, January 21, 2009

Brookwood Medical Center, St. Vincent's Health System, and Select Specialty Hospitals are opposing Birmingham-based Trinity Medical Center's plan to move. January 20 was the last day for healthcare providers to oppose Trinity's application to spend $280 million to finish and move to a former HealthSouth hospital on the U.S. 280 corridor in Alabama. The opposition means it will be many months before the State Certificate of Need Review Board will vote on Trinity's application to move from its current facility. The case now goes first to an administrative law judge, who will hold a trial and hear evidence from all sides.
