Palmetto Health and Newberry County Memorial Hospital (NCMH) have agreed to end their disagreement over a Certificate of Need (CON) application for Palmetto Health Baptist Parkridge. They seek to increase access to and competition for healthcare facilities and services in the Midlands and to move forward in the best interests for providing care to the communities they serve. This agreement will allow Palmetto to proceed with the proposed Palmetto Health Baptist Parkridge Hospital (Parkridge Hospital) and allow NCMH to focus on growing and improving healthcare services in Newberry County.
Palmetto Health, sharing with NCMH a mission to serve the citizens of their service areas, will provide a grant to the Newberry County Hospital Foundation that it will use to support NCMH’s mission. The grant will total $6.25 million when Parkridge opens and admits its first patient.
NCMH has dropped its appeal of a Certificate of Need awarded Palmetto to build the Parkridge Hospital. DHEC will now issue the CON for Parkridge Hospital.
