Ruling clears way for April hearing on Fort Mill hospital

January 18, 2013 

— A South Carolina judge has denied a request to have the state’s health agency again review applications for a Fort Mill hospital, clearing the way for an April hearing.

Presbyterian Hospital had appealed the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control’s decision that Carolinas HealthCare System is best qualified to operate a new Fort Mill hospital.

Presbyterian alleged DHEC failed to comply with its own rules by not making findings required by law, did not adequately address indigent care or the quality of health care.

Presbyterian asked the court to send the issue back to DHEC, arguing those findings could only be made by the state agency.
