This Sunday: Belleville hospital leaders at odds over St. Elizabeth’s relocation plan

This Sunday, the News-Democrat takes a detailed look at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital’s plan to move to O’Fallon — and Memorial Hospital’s opposition to the project.

In new arguments submitted to state regulators, St. Elizabeth’s says Memorial opposes the plan only because Memorial wants to put St. Elizabeth’s out of business. Memorial calls that argument “inflammatory.”

For the second time this year, St. Elizabeth’s is set to go before the state Health Facilities and Services Review Board and ask for approval for the move. The board’s meeting Tuesday is in Bolingbrook.
