Illinois Health Planning Board again rejects proposal to build in Plainfield

Chicago Tribune, August 13, 2008

The Illinois Health Facilities Planning Board has ruled that Plainfield does not need its own hospital and deferred a decision on whether DuPage County should get a second proton therapy cancer-treatment center. This is the third time in five years that the board has rejected plans by Naperville-based Edward Hospital to build a $234 million, 162-bed hospital. Edward officials say the hospital is needed because of the area's rapid growth and because one-third of the patients at its crowded Naperville campus come from the Plainfield area.
