Well ... the State Supreme Court didn't do any good. They won't review the Certificate of Need ruling. DHEC had shut the dept down and now is having to rehire staff and it should be up and running by mid July.

Justices ruled that DHEC must administer the program, pointing out that the governor's line-item veto power affected only funding, not the existence of a program set out in state law, even if that is what she intended.

Haley may have been attempting to get rid of the Certificate of Need by not providing funding but CON is a South Carolina Law that doesn't just disappear. Taking away funding does repeal a law.

So what happens now to the Fort Mill Hospital!!??

While I agree that vetoing funding doesn't change the law, how is DHEC supposed to administer the program without any funds to pay employees?

The legislature needs to either restore funding or nix the program (which doesn't look like they are willing to do).

Either way, it doesn't look like Fort Mill will get a hospital any time soon.

It's been 10 years now, I agree I don't think we will see a Fort Mill hospital for a long time. People will continue to travel to Pineville and Charlotte. PMC will continue to the fight as they feel they need this location financially and the YC council supports them due to the tax base.

It hit the Herald about 3 hours ago. I wonder if this is over. CMC may just give up like Presbyterian did. But CMC has bought land off of Sutton Road. I know Presbyterian purchased land too. If it's appealed it will go to the S. C. Court of Appeals not to the S.C. Administrative Law Court and Judge Lenski again. Seemed strange him hearing an appeal on his own decision.

Ugh. So so disappointed.

If CMC DOES give up (and as much as I want them to be the builder, I think it's TIME to give up so FM can have SOMEthing (even if it's a crappy place like PMC)), I would assume they'll build a free-standing ED or something similar to Steele Creek instead of the full-scale hospital they planned. That's what I would do if I was CMC and decided to let PMC have it.

As for me, I'll continue utilizing CMC Main, Pineville and Steele Creek.

Just do what I did..invest in leeches. Bloodletting is going to make a comeback I tell ya! Better to bleed out at home then at a hospital full of disgruntled employees.

I just hope it's over with and PMC will move forward with a hospital.

At least York County will benefit from the taxes estimated back in 2011 at $4.1 million + annually. Carolina Healthcare is strong in our area with so many clinics. Our family doctor (Shiland Medical Center) is owned by CMC and my doctors do not have admitting privileges at PMC. I think more than 50% of York County is treated by CMC doctors.

The whole argument from Piedmont and the court is that Piedmont sucks so bad, having competition would make them even worse. Because apparently they have no desire to invest in their Rock Hill hospital to make it competitive. They say they would lose patients, they would lose affiliated doctors, etc. And yet they NEVER ask theirselves why. They want the government to protect them, and its just pathetic.

This judge is a joke. I do not see CMC giving up.
