New Wesley Chapel Hospital Applications
Last year three proposals were made to the state to build hospitals in the fast growing Wesley Chapel area. All three were denied their CON's (Certificates of Need) by the state. After regrouping, two applications have now been made. Adventist Health System and University Community Hospital have submitted a combined proposal. Additionally, Baycare Health System and USF have submitted a combined application for a Wesley Chapel teaching hospital. A decision by the state is expected on June 15th.
