Georgia's St. Joseph's/Candler Health System Could Lose $20.6M to Proposed Outpatient Center
Savannah Now report.
SJC and Beaufort Memorial Hospital filed appeals with the Administrative Law Court last week challenging the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control's decision to uphold a "certificate of need" award allowing the hospital to construct the outpatient center.
SJC and Beaufort Memorial registered concerns with DHEC last year, arguing the new rival surgery center would shift patients away from their facilities in order to meet rejections.
The SJC loss would equate to between $1.7 million and $5.3 million in lost net revenue.
