Decision on hospital still pending

OLIVE BRANCH — State health officials say a decision on Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare’s request to build a hospital in Olive Branch may still be a couple of months away.

A public hearing held in Jackson earlier this month on whether the request should be approved ended with the expectation of a decision within 40 days.

But Rachel Pittman with the state Department of Health tells The Commercial Appeal that officials are awaiting a transcript from the hearing and that opponents would have 20 days to file a response after a decision is made.

Memphis-based Methodist Le Bonheur wants to build a $137-million hospital.
