Pascack Valley Hospital fight continues

Bergen County Record, July 28, 2010

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he still believes Pascack Valley Hospital should reopen, but a new legal appeal has been filed by two hospitals to kill the application for a full-service hospital in Westwood. "My position philosophically has not changed since the campaign," Christie told The Record editorial board earlier this month. "I think Pascack should be reopened." However, he added, "Governor Corzine and [former Health] Commissioner [Heather] Howard set up an exquisite set of handcuffs to try to prevent that from happening before they left office." Plans for reopening the facility as a 128-bed community hospital, in a joint venture involving Hackensack University Medical Center and LHP Hospital Group Inc. of Plano, Texas, are mired in court proceedings.
