MADISON COUNTY — State health officer Mary Currier has denied St. Dominic Health Systems’ request to build a 71-bed hospital just north of Madison.
Currier’s decision was announced yesterday. St. Dominic officials told The Clarion-Ledger they would appeal the decision to Hinds County Chancery Court.
Currier says she agreed with her staff that the hospital isn’t needed.
Health Management Associates, which owns the only hospital in Madison County, had opposed St. Dominic’s plan to relocate 71 beds from its Jackson campus to suburban Madison.
It was St. Dominic’s third attempt to open a facility in Madison County.
