Hearing Officer Says No to New Hospital

In a move perceived as a victory for several Palm Beach County medical facilities, a state administrative law judge has recommended against Tenet Healthcare’s application to build a hospital in Palm Beach Gardens, the Palm Beach Post reports.  Judge James H. Paterson III says there are already too many empty beds in the area. The state Agency for Healthcare Administration has the final word on the application.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
