Charlotte, N.C.-based Atrium Health is still fighting to open a $147 million, 30-bed hospital in Mecklenburg County, according to the Charlotte Business Journal. 

Last year, Atrium filed a certificate of need application with North Carolina health regulators for a 160,000-square-foot hospital in the town of Cornelius.  

State health regulators denied the request in March. 

Atrium said it plans to appeal the state's decision. 

Residents in the town of Cornelius have access to two hospitals, including the 123-bed Lake Norman Regional Medical Center in Mooresville, N.C., and the 139-bed Novant Health Huntersville (N.C) Medical Center 10 miles away.
