Brookwood Hospital files appeal against Trinity move

MONTGOMERY, AL (WBRC) – The CEO of Trinity Medical Center says attorneys for Brookwood Medical Center have filed an appeal with the State Health Planning and Development Agency against Trinity's move to the digital hospital site on Highway 280.

Trinity CEO Keith Granger says Brookwood is appealing the decision by the Certificate of Need Board to allow Trinity to move to the site formerly owned by HealthSouth. He adds that St. Vincent's Hospital is expected to also file an appeal against the decision.

Both Brookwood and St. Vincent's feel the move will harm their operations financially. Granger calls the appeals "unfortunate" and says the appeal will hurt the economic development and quality of healthcare for residents along Highway 280.

Trinity has announced a new website in response to the appeal.  The site, www.noappeals.com, is set up for people to comment their feelings about the hospital move and the appeals.

Granger adds that the red lights will return to the top of the digital hospital. Every time Trinity has faced an obstacle to their moving plans, the lights have shone red.  When moving plans are progressing, the lights are green.

Trinity's CEO says the company has not made a decision on whether or not they will halt construction and moving plans due to the appeal.
