patients or their services almost certainly will be appealed to the Iowa Supreme Court attorneys for the Iowa Hospital Assn say The ruling handed down Monday was based on evidence pre sented during the 13week trial brought by the 1HA and generally up lolds the contentions of an attorney generals opinion and of the Iowa State Medical Society Comment from bath sides was pending decisions as to ulure action The IHA announced a special meeting here Dec 9 at which time an action for an appeal to the Supreme Court will be considered A leader among the hospital ad ministrators Donald Cordes of o
