Court cancels Huntersville hospital approval

Recommended Posts

I don't see how they could close it down now that it's open, but anything is possible. This hospital is INCREDIBLY nice! Presbyterian-Novant spared no expense when they built it. It is definitely providing a much needed service to the citizens of north Mecklenburg. They have a much more "local" hospital now instead of having to go to Lake Norman, Northeast, or uptown.


Court cancels Huntersville hospital approval

Judges allow Presbyterian Huntersville to remain open, leaving hospital operating without state's OK


Staff Writer

The N.C. Court of Appeals has ruled that Presbyterian Hospital Huntersville -- which opened in November -- should never have been built.

The N.C. Department of Health and Human Services violated state rules in approving the $57 million hospital in 2002, the court said, in a decision Tuesday.

The decision creates a bizarre situation. State law dictates that the state must approve the construction and opening of N.C. hospitals. And the court's ruling strikes down the approval that allows Presbyterian Huntersville to operate.

But the court didn't order the hospital shut down. Instead, it instructed the state health department to reconsider its decision.

Oh my! What a mess that is going to be. The Hospital has helped in a very positive way the development that is going on in Rosedale. A much better development than what happened around Exit 25/Birkdale.
