I don't understand how the CON law presents a legal and practical challenge in divesting? Was a CON application submitted, regional bed surplus evaluated, and approved during the course of the acquisition between HCA and the hospital authority? And if not, why would the bed surplus become a factor during a sale Bourne from a divestiture order?
