Orangeburg, S.C.-based Regional Medical Center and two local physicians are competing for a certificate of need to build an ASC in Orangeburg, The Times and Democrat reports.

General surgeon Dion Franga, MD, and radiologist Amit Sanghi, DO, are seeking approval to construct a $12.5 million ASC with two operating rooms. The center would offer ophthalmology, gastroenterology, orthopedics, urology, ENT, radiology and general surgery.

Regional Medical Center submitted its CON application a week later. The hospital wants to renovate its existing dialysis center into a surgery center with six operating rooms. The center would offer GI, orthopedics, ENT, urology, podiatry and general surgery.

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control must make a decision on the applications by Oct. 24.
