Kadlec drops lawsuit against KGH

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -- New developments in the local hospital controversy over adding beds. Today the Kadlec Board of Directors decided to drop a civil lawsuit it had filed against Kennewick General Hospital.

Kadlec was disputing plans for KGH's new Southridge campus. The two hospitals could not agree to a settlement and the Kadlec board decided to just move on.

Last week a judge also dismissed another lawsuit Kadlec had filed. Both hospitals are still waiting for the State Health Department to determine how many extra beds they will be allowed to add.
