"I am prepared to state publicly
some of the politics that go on" with the
regional planning group and the Depar-'
tment of Public Health, he said.
Regional health planners of the Com-
prehensive Health Planning Council for
Southeastern Michigan (CHPC) serve
in an advisory role to the state public
health department in the review and
approval of hospital construction
projects. The review process is
designed to ensure that a new hospital
is needed, so that superfluous hospital
beds do not contribute to the rising cost
of medical care.
Regional planners have voiced con-
cern that if the University's project is
approved, they will face great difficulty
as they force hospital mergers in
Detroit, in order to reduce the surplus
of hospital beds there.
The planners are responsible for im-
plementing a hospital bed reduction
plan in Southeastern Michigan.
However, they do not have final say on
new construction approval; that power
rests with state officials.
