...... Time marches on for the Fort Mill Hospital.

Another appeal is on the way from Carolinas Healthcare System. The appeal was filed late today!

It doesn't surprise me; CHS won't stop appealing until they get awarded the Hospital. PMC is going to do the same since if CHS ends up building a hospital in Fort Mill it would effect them more than the other way around.

I don't feel that CHS would loose that much business if PMC did build in Fort Mill. It would just mean that people in Fort Mill would have to drive an extra 5 or 10 minutes to CMC Pineville or the stand alone ER at Hwy 160 and 49 near the River Chase shopping center if they wanted to go to CMC.

I would prefer PMC building the hospital since they would add to the tax base; while CHS won't . I don't have any problem driving the 5 or 10 minutes to I would need to get to the CMC locations.

^^^^^ Yes the appeals will continue back and forth. It doesn't matter to me I have CMC Shiland Medical, Steele Creek and Pineville. The tax base from PMC is a big plus and people will continue with their CMC providers. The appeals need to stop.

I agree the appeals need to stop. Award the hospital to the superior organization and do what is best for the residents of FM. Piedmont will never have the resources, technology or support CMS offers. A 5 ot 10 minute drive can also mean life or death so I do have an issue driving. They should let them both build and see who is left standing.

^^^^ This. Our population has more than doubled since the original Certificate of Need was created. Time to do away with it or revise it to say that we need twice the beds, and allow both companies to build their own facility.

From the article; In its filing, Carolinas HealthCare contends the stay should be granted because it has posted a $1.5 million bond required for certificate-of-need appeals — money the health-care system could forfeit if it loses its appeal.

Lots of money is being thrown around in this fight for the hospital.

I know that people don't want Piedmont to win; but what they would pay in annual property tax that goes to Fort Mill Schools (around 2.8 million a year) is 58% of property tax increase that home owners will end up paying each year if the new school bond passes (17,200 existing homes * $277 average increase; comes out to over 4.76 million a year in increased property tax).

It seems that if Piedmont ever does build a new Hospital; that it might mean that future property tax increases due to school bonds; won't be as painful (wishful thinking, I know).
