Obtaining successful [certificate of need] approval with so many different class owners was a huge challenge. The ability for the physicians, from several different practices, to remain organized throughout the lengthy regulatory process is a testament to their continued partnership. It is very satisfying to meet the expectations of the physicians, hospital and the health center who were all counting on PE to achieve their goal."
