Birmingham-based medical center files request for emergency department
Birmingham News, June 24, 2008
Birmingham, AL-based Brookwood Medical Center has filed an application for state approval of a $19 million, freestanding emergency department. The Certificate of Need application says the lack of hospital-level emergency care in the densely populated area of North Shelby County demands such a project. The expected growth of the region in the immediate future further highlights the need, said Brookwood representatives.
