ORDERS:

CONSENT ORDER

This matter comes before the Administrative Law Judge upon the Certificate of Need (CON) application of Abbeville Home Care (AHC), to establish a home health agency in McCormick County, South Carolina. Abbeville Memorial Hospital sought through its application to provide a new service.

In March of 1995, the Petitioner, Abbeville Home Care, filed an application with the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental (DHEC/Department) for the one (1) available Certificate of Need for a home health agency in McCormick County, South Carolina. Department staff denied the application on June 23, 1995 because it lacked letters of support from the county physicians and discharge planners that met the criteria required by the 1994 South Carolina Health Plan.

Since the original application for the CON was received, more specific letters of support have been forthcoming. It now appears that the parties have agreed to resolve the issues between them in this Consent Order.

IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED, CONSENTED TO AND AGREED as follows:

The Department shall issue a Certificate of Need to Abbeville Home Care, Abbeville Memorial Hospital, to provide home health care in the McCormick County service area in accordance with the CON application submitted by AHC.

AND IT IS SO ORDERED.
