Franklin County, NC, hospital appeals state’s denial of its request to relocate
Raleigh News & Observer, May 21, 2008
North Carolina's decision to deny the proposed move of Franklin County's only hospital from Louisburg to Youngsville has been appealed by the corporate owners of the facility and Rex Healthcare.
In an appeal filed with the North Carolina Office of Administrative Hearings, Rex Healthcare and Health Management Associates have asked the state to take another look at their bid to relocate the 70-bed Franklin Regional Medical Center. The proposed $103 million project would have replaced the aging facility in Louisburg that was bought by HMA in the 1980s.
