Commission to rule on Mont. Co. hospital

By Washington Post editors

The Maryland Health Care Commission is likely to decide Thursday whether a new hospital will be built in Germantown, Clarksburg, both communities or neither.

The vote by the commission, which is scheduled to meet at noon in Baltimore, has been highly anticipated by advocates of competing hospital proposals. Holy Cross Hospital and Adventist HealthCare both submitted plans to build a hospital in northern Montgomery County.

In December, a reviewer for the commission called Holy Cross's plan the "superior" proposal and recommended approval, but Adventist HealthCare officials have continued to lobby for the facility they planned to build in Clarksburg.
