FTC halts admin. proceeding

The Federal Trade Commission has suspended the administrative proceeding in Washington on the purchase of Palmyra Medical Center by the Hospital Authority of Albany and Dougherty County.

The FTC took the action today, pending the appeal by the FTC to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals of the ruling in Federal Court in Albany by Judge Louis Sands that the purchase is immune from FTC regulation and dismissing the FTC case.

Suspending this proceeding eliminates the need to prepare for and conduct an administrative hearing that was scheduled for Sept. 19 in Washington.
