The state denied Central Peninsula Hospital's plans to build two additional endoscopy clinics and to expand the hospital's imaging capacity
KENAI – The state has denied portions of a $43 million expansion plan for Central Peninsula Hospital.
The state denied the hospital’s plans to build two additional endoscopy clinics and to expand the hospital’s imaging capacity with MRI, PET and CT scans.
The Peninsula Clarion reports (http://is.gd/ddi7r4) a conditional use permit was conditionally issued for the remainder of the expansion project: a 5,100 square-foot infusion therapy clinic, pain management clinic, orthopedic clinic, a 10,000 square-foot spine clinic and additional undetermined clinic space.
To remove the “conditional” part from the document, a revised budget removing $4.6 million from the budget must be approved and sent back to the state. That has been done, but the state hasn’t indicated a final decision might be made.
