Medical Center EMS Lawsuit to proceed after judge denies motion to dismiss

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- A Franklin Circuit Court judge denied a motion filed by TriStar Greenview Regional Hospital and the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services to dismiss a Medical Center EMS lawsuit challenging the Cabinet’s emergency regulation involving ambulance service.

Medical Center EMS filed the lawsuit in October after the emergency regulation cited a public health crisis in Warren County due to a lack of ambulance service.

Med Center Health is the sole owner and operator of ambulance service throughout Warren County.

TriStar Regional Greenview has submitted plans to begin an ambulance service of its own.
