LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Officials have set a date to hear an appeal on the Lee County Medical Center's Certificate of Need.

A decision will be made on Crisp County Regional Hospital's appeal on April 30.

The hospital filed that motion back in December after the Department of Community Health approved the Lee County Medical Center's CON application.

Two other groups, Dougherty County and The Georgia Alliance of Community Hospitals also filed appeals.
