Birth center hearing lands new venue

-A A +A

Fourth day of testimony scheduled for March 26

The fourth day of testimony in the certificate of need hearing for a proposed birth center in Elizabethtown has a new venue.

The hearing for the Visitation Birth & Family Wellness Center will resume at 8:30 a.m. March 26 at the First City Complex, 102 Athletic Drive, in Frankfort. The hearing was forced to change venues because the Kentucky Bar Association, where the previous testimony was heard, is unavailable.

When the hearing reconvenes, attorneys for Hardin Memorial Hospital, Flaget Memorial Hospital in Bardstown and Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center in Leitchfield will cross examine Roger Cochran, an expert witness in health planning and partner with Morgan Healthcare Consulting.
