Mercy Health System gets another chance in Illinois
BOLINBROOK, ILL--Shot down twice, Mercy Health System officials will get a third chance to make their case for building a new hospital and clinic in Crystal Lake, Ill.
On Tuesday, the Illinois Health Facilities and Services Review Board agreed to reconsider Mercy’s proposal, most likely at a meeting in September.
Mercy has been trying for nearly a decade to get board permission to build on land it owns on Three Oaks Road and Route 31.
In December, the board denied Mercy’s plan for the 70-bed, $115 million project. In June, the same board voted its intention to deny Mercy a certificate of need for a $200 million, 128-bed hospital and clinic.
The certificate of need is required for construction.
