Centegra Health System, based in Crystal Lake, Ill., has received state approval for a planned 128-bed hospital in Huntley, Ill.
The facility would be Centegra's third hospital. The Illinois Health Facilities Services and Review Board approved the certificate of need Tuesday. The plan calls for the hospital to be named Centegra Hospital-Huntley, and according to Centegra's application to the board (PDF), it would cost $232.2 million for the six-floor facility. The approval came after the board voted last year to deny the plan twice.
The board approved the certificate of need 6 to 3, where at least five votes are required to grant approval. Centegra officials say it's the second hospital that's received approval in 30 years. The board in 2004 approved the plan to build Adventist Bolingbrook (Ill.) Hospital.
