State denies a pair of Cleveland hospital plans

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (WDEF) — Two hospital bids to build emergency rooms in Cleveland were rejected on Wednesday.

Both Tennova-Cleveland and Erlanger Health System were asking Tennessee regulators to allow they to build 24 hour Level IV E-R’s.

The Tennessee Health Services and Development Agency held hearings today on both Certificate of Need applications submitted earlier in the year.

The Cleveland Daily Banner reports that board members were concerned that an Erlanger facility would disrupt health car delivery in the region.

And they didn’t see the need for Tennova to build a new building just a few miles from their current hospital.

You can read the full details on the Erlanger and Tennova proposals in the Thursday edition of the Cleveland Daily Banner.
