Instead of battling legal challenges for the proposed hospital in Braselton, Northeast Georgia Health System officials are now planning for the new medical campus.
“This is a campus that is going to be here for decades,” said Tracy Vardeman, vice president of strategic planning and marketing for the health system.
The Georgia Supreme Court denied an appeal last week by Barrow Regional Medical Center, which was contesting the health system’s Certificate of Need (CON) for a new Braselton hospital on Thompson Mill Road, next to the Village at Deaton Creek.
With the state’s highest court ruling in favor of the Gainesville-based health system, Northeast Georgia officials now have the CON in hand and are ready to continue planning the South Hall medical campus. Last week’s decision ends a four-year legal battle.
After losing a prolonged court battle to halt the construction of a new hospital in Braselton, BRMC CEO Blake Watts said Barrow Regional will continue to be a leading provider of quality healthcare services to the surrounding community.
