A hospital taxing district in Volusia County wants the Florida Supreme Court to overturn a ruling that could block plans for a new hospital outside the district’s boundaries.

The Halifax Hospital Medical Center taxing district filed a notice of appeal with the Supreme Court after Circuit Judge Christopher France last month said the district does not have the legal authority to issue bonds for the 96-bed hospital project in Deltona, according to documents posted Tuesday on the Supreme Court website.
