TapInto.net reports the ongoing dispute over management control of Bayonne Medical Center has an added voice. Mayor Jimmy Davis has written a letter to Gov. Phil Murphy requesting the state to intervene in the process and expedite the approval process of BMC Hospital LLC bid on purchasing the facility. The dispute is between BMC Hospital and Hudson Regional Hospital, both of which bid on acquiring hospital operations from CarePoint Health. CarePoint Health chose the BMC Hospital bid, and Hudson Regional Hospital then claimed it purchased the hospital's land and disputed CarePoint's choice. Community leaders, including the Hudson County Improvement Authority (HCIA), have sided with BMC Hospital. The New Jersey Department of Health has yet to rule on which entity should operate the hospital.
