COLUMBIA — In October, Landmark Hospitals was given permission to build a long-term acute care hospital in Columbia after the Missouri Health Facilities Review Committee approved its Certificate of Need application. Jay Burchfield, development consultant for the project, and Landmark representatives looked at more than 20 sites around town and are currently proposing the facility near the Benton-Stephens neighborhood. Residents of Benton-Stephens will be meeting on March 4 to discuss their thoughts on this issue.
