Since I have been snowed in, I have been reading a lot and ran across this in the N&O business section.

State denies UNC request to build nursing facility in Chatham Park development
Posted by David Bracken on February 11, 2014

State regulators have denied a UNC Health Care application to build a 90-bed nursing facility in the proposed Chatham Park development near Pittsboro.

The Certificate of Need section within the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services instead awarded the beds to Liberty Healthcare Properties of Chatham County, which is also planning to build a 90-bed nursing facility.

In a statement, UNC Health Care said it is disappointed with the CON decision, and is evaluating its options.

State regulators last month did give approval for UNC to build an inpatient hospice facility in Chatham. That project was not competitively bid.

North Carolina allows only a fixed number of new hospital rooms to be built each year, and its decisions often result in fierce competition and endless appeals.

Chatham Park is a massive planned development that could eventually be home to 60,000 people, 22,000 homes and clusters of corporate campuses all spread across 7,500 acres.

The developers behind the project are now seeking to have the Chatham Park land brought inside the Pittsboro town boundaries and declared the area appropriate for a “planned development district.”

Thanks for posting the article Patty.
It's a bit confusing. Was UNC planning an actual hospital or a nursing home facility? Two totally different things. Anyone know that can clarify? Along side that, a hospice facility is also a different entity.

I hate government. If UNC wants build it seems to me UNC's view of need is all that matters. Seriously...why do government folks feel like they are smarter than everyone else?

I was thinking the same thing.  I am surprised that UNC was told no.  If ECU or someone else was trying to expand, I would understand.

A couple of random thoughts come to mind whenever I read something like this.

1> The accusations of socialism toward our gov't, whether it's at the local level or on up to the czars in DC gets bandied about fairly regularly.  A lot of times that seems like a stretch to me, but there is no way under the sun that gov't "leaders" can deny they're very much into central planning which is a less obvious but still fairly harmful component of socialism, and very detrimental to the overall freedom and economic prosperity of our society.

2>  I wish there was a certificate of need process for every one of these new asinine laws, regulations, programs, taxes and other burdens forced upon us by our government.
