Hospital proposed in Holly Springs

Posted July 23, 2008

— Holly Springs Mayor Dick Sears announced a proposal to bring a hospital and more than 200 jobs to the town Wednesday afternoon.

Sears was joined by Novant Health officials in making the announcement. Novant would run the proposed 46-bed Holly Springs Hospital.

The proposal must be approved by the state Division of Health Service Regulation. Novant is scheduled to file a certificate of need application on Aug. 15, with public hearings to follow on the plan in mid-October, Sears said. A decision could come by March 2009.

    Considering that the state blocked WakeMed from asking for new facilities (emergency rooms, offices, et cetera) in Garner and Brier Creek, why would the state approve a whole hospital in Holly Springs? Especially since they are wanting to build within five miles of WakeMed in Cary. It defies logic.

    Isn't Novant a for profit company? None of the hospitals in the Triangle are for-profit (UNC, Duke, WakeMed, Rex-Unc). I would rather keep our great non-profit hospitals expanding rather than have a for-profit company come in. Look what they did to Franklin Regional...

    I can hardly wait for Wake Med to file for a CON and/or block the CON for Novant Health like they did in Harnett County. I'm sure their opposition is forthcomming.

    This facility will be only about 5 miles from the Western Wake Hospital in Cary. But then again, since Holly Springs has grown so much, there are alot of sick people there! But most of them should be transferred to Butner!

    Well, good for them, but ... this needs to be in Fuquay, because Fuquay citizens are further away from all Wake Med Center facilities than Holly Springs folks are, especially the rural Fuquay folks.

    God bless.
