South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control
 
DOCKET NUMBER:

ORDERS:

ORDER DENYING MOTION TO INTERVENE

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) granted a Certificate of Need (CON) with restrictions to Roper Hospital, Inc (Roper) allowing Roper to expand its existing facilities at 316 Calhoun Street, Charleston, South Carolina. Initially, Roper disagreed with the restrictions and obtained a contested case seeking to have the restrictions declared invalid.


Unbeknownst to Charleston Endoscopy Center (CEC), the instant case was “dismissed with prejudice by consent of all parties” on July 30, 2003. Given its lack of knowledge of the dismissal, CEC filed a Motion to Intervene on August 6, 2003.


Since the motion to intervene was filed after the instant case was already ended with prejudice, no action remains between Roper and DHEC and, therefore, the intervention is denied.


AND IT IS SO ORDERED
