Lee County awaits Certificate of Need decision
The Lee County Board of Commissioners are close to taking the next step with the proposed Lee County Hospital.
Lee County is expecting to hear back this week from the Department of Community Health about the decision made to get the Certificate of Need.
A few weeks ago, the Board sent their written response to the Department of Community Health after multiple oppositions were made about the hospital.
According to Commissioner Billy Mathis, they are right on track, and believe that people without an agenda are on their side to get it.
"There's no choice in healthcare here," Mathis said. "The vast majority of people, the overwhelming majority of people in Dougherty and Lee County, want another hospital. They want a choice in healthcare."
Mathis adds a choice in health is the right thing to do, and they're feeling confident about where they currently stand.
