Trinity Medical Center preparing appeal of ruling that blocks relocation to US 280
Circuit Court Judge Jimmy Pool last week reversed regulators who previously had approved Trinity Medical Center's relocation, saying it would violate the State Health Plan and Alabama law. Trinity wants to spend more than $280 million to buy and complete the unfinished hospital U.S. 280, and relocate there from its Montclair Road campus. Regulators approved the plan in 2010, but Brookwood Health Services and St. Vincent's Health System filed suit to block it, arguing that it would cost them tens of millions of dollars in lost business and that Trinity misled regulators in seeking the hospital's approval.
