State to decide if Nashville hospital can end obstetrics
The Tennessean, December 17, 2008
A Tennessee agency that hears requests for new healthcare facilities, equipment, and services will decide whether Nashville-based Southern Hills Medical Center should be allowed to permanently drop labor and delivery services for pregnant women and their babies. Southern Hills wants to end delivery of babies and give up its six neonatal intensive care beds. Hospital officials say a group of doctors who used to work at Southern Hills chose to consolidate their obstetrics practice at fellow HCA-affiliate StoneCrest Medical Center 20 minutes away in Smyrna.
