TAKOMA PARK, Md - A Maryland hospital commission member is recommending the state deny a hospital permission to move from Takoma Park to Silver Spring.
Barbara McLean, who is on the Maryland Heath Care Commission, tells The Washington Post that she opposes the request from Washington Adventist Hospital because it has failed to show its proposed project is financially feasible.
The hospital wants to move to the White Oak area of Silver Spring, where it hopes to build a $389 million hospital. Hospital officials have said there isn't enough room for an expansion at its Takoma Park site.
The full commission will consider McLean's recommendation at an Oct. 18 meeting.
