Board refuses to reconsider Trinity move

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) – The Alabama Certificate of Need has refused a request to reconsider their decision to allow Trinity Medical Center to move to a new site.  The Board voted 4-1 on the issue.

At the meeting in Montgomery, Trinity executives argued against efforts to stop the move to Highway 280.

Other hospitals in the Birmingham metro claim Trinity's plan would hurt medical care by taking patients from them.

It has been a little more than a month since the State Certificate of Need Board gave its approval to Trinity's plans to move to the digital hospital site on Highway 280.
