Mission Regional Medical Center representatives asked the economic development corporation not to give a competing hospital incentive to build a free-standing emergency department 600 feet away at the MEDC’s Tuesday meeting.
Universal Health Systems asked for up to $110,000 to offset the costs of infrastructure and job creation as it prepares to build a 13,000-square-foot facility on the expressway next to the Mission hospital.
Because the item on the MEDC agenda was listed as a public hearing, no action was taken.
