About this Article

A $131 million plan to build a new hospital in Lindenhurst drew fans and critics to a public hearing Thursday morning. The backers said the proposed facility would improve access to health care services for residents in the northwestern part of Lake County. Opponents said Lake County already has too many consistently empty hospital beds and insisted a new hospital isn't needed.
