among regional health care providers.
A group of smaller hospitals in Detroit
has formed to protect their interests.
The group contends small hospitals
will be forced to close when a bed-
reduction plan finally is adopted, while
larger hospitals with more political
clout will survive.
CHPC regional planners say ap-
proval of a new University Hospital, as
it is now planned, will hurt their efforts
to enforce a bed-reduction plan.
CHPC PLANNERS claim the Univer-
sity has avoided regional planning by
asking for state approval after it
refused to change hospital plans in
response to CHPC criticisms that the
hospital plans were too large and

should respond before state approval of

Dalston said regional planners "ten-
ded to look at acute care hospital beds
as being the same everywhere."
. Regional planners say the Univer-
sity should consider the impact a new
hospital will have on southeastern
Michigan, which has many hospitals
that cannot fill their beds.
IN ADDITION to these issues, at the
press conference in Detroit yesterday,
Mel Ravitz, a member of CHPC's
Board of Trustees, said the University
did not take new health care laws into
account in planning a hospital.
