A Georgia appeals court says Palmyra Medical Center should be granted a certificate of need for an obstetrics unit, but with this sale pending, it may have come too late. Palmyra tried to 20 years to get permission to deliver babies, but Phoebe fought them all the way.

The Georgia Court of Appeals has now ruled that two superior court judges who tossed out a decision to give Palmyra a certificate of need erred when they did it.

The appeals court says the two judges over stepped their bounds.
