ARLINGTON, TN (WMC) - Baptist Memorial Health Care is looking to open a new emergency department.

The company filed a certificate of need for a free-standing emergency department in Arlington, Tennessee in March.

A judge ruled in favor of the company, but other health care organizations have 15 days to oppose Baptist's plans.

The health care company says the facility will service a four county area and bring 30 jobs into the community.

It will in include eight rooms, x-ray, CT scan, and a helipad.

Upon approval, the company will start construction later this year.
