Parkridge drops challenge to new Ringgold hospital

RINGGOLD, Georgia (WDEF) – Officials at Parkridge Health System say they have dropped their appeal of the certificate of need ruling for a new hospital in the Ringgold area.

CHI Memorial planned to build a new hospital on Battlefield Parkway, but Parkridge challenged it as being in their territory.

The challenge has held up construction of the new facility, much to the annoyance of Catoosa County officials and many residents.

This decision now clears the way.

“Going into the new year, Parkridge Health will be prioritizing our efforts to focus more on the development and construction of our two new freestanding emergency departments to be located at Camp Jordan in East Ridge and Soddy-Daisy.”
