Lee County officials said Friday morning in a release the Georgia Department of Community Health has informed the county that its Certificate of Need Application was received by the state, and is complete.

Lee County expects to have a decision on its application for a new hospital by mid-November.

“This is a great milestone in our process to develop Lee County Medical Center,” said Billy Mathis, Lee County Commission Vice Chairman. “We appreciate the hard work of the Department staff in making this decision, and we look forward to working with them further over the coming months.”

The hospital is slated for land now occupied by the Grande Island Golf Course off Ledo Road, in Lee County.
